I moved here from Southern California 2 and a half years ago and was shocked how much stuff they fry here. Women fry frozen chicken nuggests. We always baked those in Cali.
I tried again last night and the disaster level was the opposite. I dredged everything first, got the oil to temp and when I added the onions the oil got so cold it took too long for them to cook and the batter was tough. Good but tough. Then again, it was a Rachel Ray recipe and my luck with her stuff now stands at 1 win about a dozen losses.
I did check out fryers and electric skillets last night. I'll definitely be purchasing something in the next month. Thanks for all the help.
