    Refrigerate before frying?

    Somewhere I read that refrigerating chicken (after preparing with flour, egg, bread crumbs), for a an hour or so before frying will help prevent it from soaking up oil. Is there any truth to that?

    Struggle Chicken/Breast

    Does anybody have a better way to slice Chicken Breasts for breast cutlets? When you slice them in 1/2 longways, I cut the remaining cutlets in two and pound till thin so as to attain the same size for even cooking, etc. Is there a better way that you know?

    Help chicken breasts

    Never finish on the stove. I bread them, (flour, egg, bread crumb mixture), then saute till golden brown and finish at 300 degrees for about 12 minutes depending on thickness (I like thin). Juicy every single time.

    Searing Scallops

    You must use "Dry" scallops. If you buy most frozen scallops, they have been soaked in brine to add water weight. They water will come out when searing and they will never brown. I tell people this constantly and they say they have never heard of Dry Scallops. They will cost more.
