This is my newest kitchen toy, a T-Fal Snacking Fryer that I found at Tuesday Morning for only $19.99! The MSRP on this baby is over $40 and I’ve had my eye on this fryer for some time now. I like it because it has a nice vented lid that keeps all of the popping oil contained AND with an electric thermometer built in, the heat remains consistent, which makes for non-greasy fried foods, every time!
For my maiden voyage with my new deep fryer, I decided on making a local-plate-lunch-style meal of Kara`age Chicken (aka Japanese-Style Fried Chicken), YUM!!
I followed the directions on the box of Kikkoman Kara`age Seasoning Mix, set the coated pieces of boneless-skinless Chicken Thigh meat on a wire rack as the fryer came up to temperature (just watch for the light red light on the front panel to go out).
I then cooked the Chicken in batches to a deep golden delicious crispy brown and drained it all on paper towels.
I had already made a batch of My Quick Cucumber Kim Chee and a fresh pot of steamed Rice to round out the plate-lunch-style supper for us two.
MAN! That was ONO!!!
Next time around, we need to make some of my CopyCat Zippy’s Macaroni Salad too, oh yeah!
