Who's having fried chicken?

Getting ready to try low carb fried chicken with the pork rinds. Just curious about what you fry your chicken in. Normally I fry with peanut oil but some how I don't think this will be the best choice. Any suggestions?

I use either canola oil or sunflower oil, depending on what's handy. I also add Mrs. Dash to the pork rind/parmesan mix for a little extra flavor.

Are you deep frying, or pan frying?

I deep fry in peanut oil. I'd love to use rice bran oil for everything but it's too expensive to deep fry in it very often!! Not that peanut oil is cheap but at least it can take the high temps of deep frying without breaking down too fast.

I used coconut oil for frying some chicken breasts and they turned out golden brown and delicious!!! (It wasn't deep fry, it was a regular pan fry)

I make clarified butter once a week

Love frying in it. It does not smoke because all of the lactose is
out of it. I carmelized crusted a trip tip in this butter before
placing it in my Nesco Roaster, gosh it was tasty. The juices
were excellent and we cooked our veggies in that broth.

Claified Butter (Ghee)

2 cubes butter in a small non-tick sauce pan.
Heat on the lowest your burner will go.
Let it heat very slowly and the lactose will
all become a crust at the top of the golden
butter. Run it through a fine seive into your
butter container. Does not need to be refirgerated.
However we keep it about 70 degrees to 72 in our
home.

Barbo...what does it taste like, it is kind of like a browned butter flavor?

as per johnny bowden Living Low Carb(revised ed 2010)

peanut oil is high in omega 6s. U want something that is high in omega 3s. grape seed oil fits the bill and has a high smoking point. I am not spilling out good money. so i am adding the grape seed oil to the peanut oil. when the peanut oil is used up. i will not buy a new one. Everyone(incl Mr. Bowden) is also singing the praises of coconut oil. Quite expensive for a troll in my tax bracket. I will stick to the grape seed oil. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI
