Kitchen tip of the day!

Whether you are frying chicken, french fries, chicken fingers, whatever, on the stovetop in a skillet, it can be tricky to know exactly when the oil is hot enough to add the food (and not too hot!-yikes) Here's a simple way to tell when the oil is at a perfect 350 degrees. Place an unpopped popcorn kernel in the oil as you place it on the burner. When the oil reaches 350 degrees, the kernel will pop and you are ready to add the food. Works every time!
