Trying something new...

A few years ago I did a life style change. I started working out daily, cooking healthy etc. I haven't fried anything in years. One thing we miss is my homemade fried chicken nuggets. Tonight I am trying to bake them with evoo. Hope it turns out!

 Hey let us know!  I do homemade nuggets.  I'm not too concerned about the frying part.  I'm not excesive about it and cook well in other areas, but I'm always open for new ideas.

When we started eating healthy, I would still fry every once in a great while, but over time, it started making us feel sick everytime we ate fried food. Now we don't dare eat at a McDs.

 We still eat fast food every now and then, but when someone else has it, the smell makes me sick.  Fried at home doesn't bother me though, but I'm really thinking it's not the same thing LOL. My extra virgin olive oil in a shallow pan isn't quite the same as their nasty old greese dunked chicken. 

I do know what you mean though!

I use evoo but not to fry. To make french fried, I cut potatoes into wedges then toss in evoo just to coat. Place on a cookie sheet in a single layer and bake in an over set to Broil. It takes abut 7 minutes then flip and in for another 7.

This way they are not setting in oil. Although evoo is a good fat, tomuch can still be bad.

I don't know why I didn't think of it, but I found a recipe for chicken nuggets using basicly the same concept. Coat the chicken, like normal, grease a pan in evoo, place the chicken in single layers and spray with evoo. Cook at 400 flipping 1 or 2 times. Cook until done. I can't wait to try it. The only thing I had to change from my normal recipe is breading in flour to using bread crumbs.

Take pork skins and smash them up. That is what we do. It is pretty good.
