I went to pick my son up at school the other day and ran into on of the lunch room ladies. We got to talking and she told me of the conversation between her and my 9 yr. old son that had taken place that day.
Son: "Excuse me. What kind of chicken is that?"
L.R.L.: "It is baked chiken."
Son: "Oh, I thought it was fried."
L.R.L.: "No, it's baked. We don't do fried chicken here."
Son: "My Dad cooks fried chicken on his grill, and it's REALLY good!"
Well the lunch room lady said she had a good laugh and she asked me, still laughing, how I cooked FRIED chicken on the grill. I had to eggsplain that I had not actually fried chicken on the grill, but then the wheels started turning. I am thinking it is theoreticlly possible to fry chicken on the egg (CI dutch oven with lid, 400° to 450°), but would it be worth doing? Has anyone else tried this? If I try this, anything I need to watch for (besides the obvious cautions of hot oil and open flame)?
