A Twice-Cooked Fried Chicken
The secret technique for healthy fried chicken? Flash-frying it. Here's how: You poach the meat first in a pot of broth, until it's tender. Since it's already cooked, the chicken needs less time in a frying pan full of oil to develop a golden crust. In a "flash" (read: 30 seconds to a minute) the poached chicken crisps up nicely, without absorbing as much oil as it would if you cooked it the traditional way.
