Chef's Tip

Oil that is too hot will burn the breading instantly and the meat will still be raw, while oil that is still cold will make it oily and soggy. To check if the oil is ready, dip a wooden spoon. Small bubbles should appear on the surface of the spoon. The oil should sizzle right away. Smoking oil is too hot. The oil should reach half of the height of the item being fried.
