    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    Experimented tonight with a few things:


    Fried chicken crust - pecans run through the food processor, salt and pepper. Chicken run through beaten eggs first, then the pecan crusting.


    Fried in coconut oil (which seems to have a far lower smoke point than anticipated, so after seeing half of it smoke away while I was getting other stuff ready, made up the difference with, yes, vegetable oil. I need help on this front!).


    End result? Pretty good ... the coconut oil-dominant first batch was a bit too coconutty for chicken, but the pecan crusting was awesome.


    Second and third batches were great, though. Advice on frying with coconut oil? Or should I stick to bacon drippings/lard for frying....

    Looks Primal to me alright. Oh wait, the veggie oil, ok, Primalish it is. I have the oil smoking away no matter what kind it is if it's on the pan for too long. I guess the trick is to add it to the pan just before you add the other stuff.

    We fry in lard, it's very neutral tasting. Almond meal also works as a 'breading'.

    The "Seven Deadly Sins"

    Grains (wheat/rice/oats etc) . . . . . Dairy (milk/yogurt/butter/cheese etc) . . . . . Nightshades (peppers/tomato/eggplant etc)
    Tubers (potato/arrowroot etc) . . . Modernly palatable (cashews/olives etc) . . . Refined foods (salt/sugars etc )
    Legumes (soy/beans/peas etc)

    I'm thinking that lard is the way to go next time around. Almond meal is also on the list to try next time around...
