Some of the South's Best Fried Chicken Is Served from a Gas Station

  Some of the South's Best Fried Chicken Is Served from a Gas Station The convenient store serves the most glorified gas station fried chicken in the state, possibly the entire region. To me, there’s something wildly nostalgic about grabbing a box of chicken and taters while simultaneously paying for gas. Maybe it’s the unpretentious setting that adds to the flavor, but I can attest that is honestly some of the best tasting chicken in North Carolina. The late Charlie Nichols opened the first Nic’s Pic Kwik in 1971 and the first official store with a deli inside opened in 1977—making it the first convenience store to serve fried chicken in North Carolina at the time.

The difference between a sauté pan and a skillet is a subtle but important one, and it all comes down to shape. A skillet offers advantages for sautéing , and a sauté pan offers advantages for shallow- frying , moderate-temperature searing (as for chicken pieces), or braising.

Sometimes a recipe's directions can be... confusing. When they tell you to sauté, or pan-fry, or sear, what exactly is the difference? And which technique is healthier? Pan-frying (or any kind of frying) is bad for you—isn't it?

Well, it turns out that most of these terms are related to the amount of oil or fat that you use, and all of them can be made more or less healthy (even frying) depending on your technique. So here it is, your definitive list of every open-pan stovetop cooking technique, from toasting to deep frying, and how to make each a little healthier:

Toasting:

This method is used for browning items like nuts, coconut flakes, grains, and dried chile peppers. It’s a low-fat method, since you don’t use any oil in the pan while you toast.

But if some new research is to be believed, your fried breakfast might do more harm than just raising your cholesterol.

Is there really a difference between pan - frying and pan - searing ? The crust on a pan - fried food is not be as crisp as if it were pan- seared . The same foods that can be cooked pan- seared can also be cooked pan - fried .

Health Boost: This is an inherently healthy technique. But one caveat: avoid toasting in a cast-iron pan that’s not properly cleaned and seasoned, as bits of char or iron residue could transfer to the food.

Searing:

This technique puts tasty brown crust on meat. When you heat a cast-iron skillet until it’s smoking hot, then brown a steak or a roast in it, you’re searing. Contrary to popular belief, the method won’t "seal in juices," but it adds delicious deep flavor and crunchy texture to the meat’s surface—here's more on how to do it.

What's the Difference Between Stuffing and Dressing?

  What's the Difference Between Stuffing and Dressing? Here's a hint: It doesn't have anything to do with whether it's been inside a dead bird.Some people don’t say “stuffing,” though. They say “dressing.” In these calamitous times, knowing how to properly refer to the giant glob of insulin-spiking bread seems necessary.

What ' s the difference between a pan and a frying pan ? Pan Searing is a technique used in grilling, baking, braising, roasting, sautéing , etc., in which the surface of the food (usually meat, poultry or fish) is cooked at high temperature until a caramelized crust forms.

Health Boost: Be careful not to burn the meat. In addition to adding bitter flavors, scorching may introduce carcinogens to the meat, according to the National Cancer Institute.

Sautéing:

Here’s a technique you probably use often—heat the skillet over medium-high, add a few teaspoons of fat (or up to 2 tablespoons) to the pan, put in your food and stir or toss every so often. This method is generally low-fat, since you only need enough oil or butter to lightly coat the surface of the pan to prevent sticking—here's more on how to do it.

Canola Oil Could Cause Weight Gain and Memory Loss

  Canola Oil Could Cause Weight Gain and Memory Loss According to a recent study conducted on mice, just two tablespoons of canola oil per day can cause weight gain and severe progression of Alzheimer’s disease.&nbsp;According to a recent study conducted on mice, just two tablespoons of canola oil per day can cause weight gain and severe progression of Alzheimer’s disease. The new results are calling into question previous recommendations of canola oil as a healthful alternative to saturated fats.

Key Difference : A Frying Pan is a pan that is optimized for frying , whereas a Sauté Pan is optimized for sautéing . A frying pan is a flat-bottomed pan used for frying , searing , and browning foods. First decision is to decide is what to cook, then comes the harder task of how to cook it.

I've never really considered there to be a real difference between sautéing and frying . They both mean to cook in a hot pan with a little bit of fat. However there isn't a lot of consistency online.

Health Boost: If using a nonstick pan, you may be able to use even less fat than the recipe calls for since food will slide on the nonstick surface anyway. Also, recipes that call for butter to grease the pan can usually work just as well with a mix of butter and oil, or just oil alone, depending on the intended flavor profile of the dish.

When Should You Buy the Fancy Olive Oil?

  When Should You Buy the Fancy Olive Oil? When it comes to confusing labels and price points, I find olive oil to be second only to wine. Once you get a handle on the whole virginity thing, there is the matter of region to contend with, and it can be hard to know which one you “should” cook with. In its simplest form, “olive oil” is simply oil extracted from the fruit of an olive tree and can be either “refined” or “unrefined.” “Refined” sounds fancier and, according to The Kitchn, though it does remove “flaws” from the oil, it can also remove color and flavor. “Unrefined” olive oil is further broken down into two categories—”virgin” and “extra virgin.

Pan-Frying and Deep Frying:

Pan-frying, a.k.a. shallow-frying, calls for filling a skillet to a certain depth (generally around 1/3 full) with oil heated to a specific temperature—often between 325°F and 400°F. If you fry chicken in a pan with oil that comes halfway up the sides of the pieces, then turning them partway through cooking, you’re pan-frying—here's more on how to do it. Deep-frying, of course, is when your food is completely submerged in the oil—here's more on that technique.

Health Boost: The best way to keep food from soaking up lots of frying oil is to make sure the oil stays hot enough. That’s because with oil-submersion cooking, food releases water content in the form of steam (the reason for the wild bubbling). The outgoing steam prevents excess oil from seeping into the food.

We find 375°F is ideal for quick-frying items like veggies and dumplings, while 340°F is best for meats. When you first add food to the pan, the oil temperature will drop. Adjust the burner as needed to return to the target temp. It also helps to have the oil 5° to 10°F hotter than the target temperature before you add food, so you won’t have to raise the temperature much after (if at all).
