Using any variety of spices that you may have on hand and good fats this recipe offers a simple and quick way to prepare fried chicken that is both healthy and satisfying. Your kids will love it!
In my low fat days I would never cook fried foods. But now that I know which fats to use for high heat cooking I am confident that this is a healthy meal. Tallow from grass fed animals a good saturated fat with plenty of vitamin D which aids in mineral absorption. It is full of CLA which is a very healthy trans fat.
Numerous studies have indicated that CLA is an anti-cancer agent that fights a wide variety of tumors, including bladder, brain, skin, breast, colon and prostate. It appears that CLA blocks initiation, promotion and metastasis — three of the four stages of cancer. Additionally, CLA has been found to lower LDL levels, and prevent bone loss. CLA has also been found to attenuate allergic dermatitis in mice.
Eating ethically and humanely raised animals for food is satisfying physically, emotionally and spiritually. In the face of rhetoric from all corners, the USDA, American Heart, etc., it is clear that animals raised on pasture offer us nutrient dense foods that are unsurpassed. Especially the fat.
