Is chicken fried in olive oil bad?

In a way. Olive oil must be used at a lower temperature, so the chicken won't cook as fast and will absorb more oil in the coating, so you end up with greasy chicken. A better method of cooking the chicken would be to dry the chicken, use the oil as a coating and bake it in the oven. The advantage would be that the chicken wouldn't sit in the oil as long, and the excess fat would drain off.

To do this recipe, dry the chicken well with toweling, then dip it in the olive oil. Next, roll it in your coating mixture, then place on baking pan or cookie sheet. Cover the chicken with foil and bake about 30 minutes @350. Take the foil off, and let the chicken brown for about 5-10 minutes.

It will be tender and juicy with a crisp coating and the benefits of the olive oil.

Coconut Oil

Can you substitute olive oil for coconut oil?

No, both are entirely different by nature. And both gives completely different taste, smell, flavour when applied in any dish or preparation. For example take the case of mayonnaise. which if prepared by olive oil tasted great. but tastes funny and odourful if prepared with coconut oil.

same way, taking the case of any Indian dish. In the flavour and aroma of any Indian dish, coconut oil has a major role to play. You can't achieve that taste with olive oil or any other oil.

hope the answer is clear. if not call or mail me Deepu, 971-055-9593259 deepuvanquish777@gulfair.ae.in

How many drops of sweet oil do you place in the ear?

Two or three drops is what's usually suggested, but if you use more, it's not a problem, just wipe it up. Sweet oil is the same thing as olive oil and will not hurt you. To be most effective in the ear, warm the oil up by running hot water over the bottle or putting it under your heating pad a couple of minutes.

Do not microwave the bottle or the oil. You want it to be only a few degrees warmer than body temperature.

Another use: I have noticed that Sweet Oil works best on baby's bum than bum creams or vaseline. Simply apply sweet oil to your baby's bum after every nappy change.

I stumbled across this question actually looking for the kind of oil he drinks. So he does drink oil. Could be olive oil, could be fish oil i don't remember but whatever he does drink it seems to work great.

Olive Oil

Why would a sailor get an olive oil tattoo and where?

No precise idea ;- )
Perhaps because of the cartoon character 'Popeye the Sailor Man', who consumes copious amounts of spinach to help strengthen him, enabling him to protect his love interest 'Olive Oyl' against 'Bruno' the bad Captain.
(Hence spinach with a serving suggestion of olive oil)
It is possible that Popeye had an olive oil tattoo on his arm, and maybe other sailors sport it as a tribute to the infamous cartoon character.

Can you cook asparagus in butter in stead of olive oil?

Absolutely! I usually put enough butter into the pan to cover the bottom half of the asparagus. Mix it up a few times while baking and then the asparagus takes on the buttery taste and you have a plate of delicious veggies! The big draw back is that you've now made a healthy dish into something slightly less healthy and slightly more cholesteroly.

What are the pros and cons of using Olive Oil?

First, let's start with the cons. It's expensive, often 2 to 3 times the cost of plainer vegetable oils. Second, it has a strong, distinctive flavor. This is terrific in some cases, but used too often or with subtle flavors, it becomes too dominant. Last, it had a low burn/smoke point. This means that it breaks down and burns in frying over longer periods. Great for a quick saute, though.

The benefits are numerous: first, the flavor (when used sparingly) is terrific, and some olive oils have real "personality". Second it's rich in monounsaturated fat, which can lower total cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein -- LDL or "bad" -- cholesterol. Virgin and Extra-virgin contain a good amount of polyphenols, which are an anti-oxidants. These purge out unstable molecules called free radicals and reduce harmful cellular inflammation.

Is too much olive oil dangerous to your unborn child?

Olive oil is perfectly ok, in fact, the essential fatty acids may play a positive role on the devolpment of the child. Nyquil can because harmful not because of the slight alcohol (more alcohol in most fruit than a serving of Nyquil) but from the adverse effects from the drugs inside of it. It contains an antihistamine, cough suppressant (Dextromethorphan) and a NSAID. Nyquil also contains sugar which is something else to avoid while pregnant. Call your doctor and discuss this with him/her also. Don't take Nyquil anymore If you're drinking it in gallons, that's probably not a good thing. If you're using it in salad dressings, cooking and other normal food preparation it shouldn't be a problem. Olive oil is a good thing, it's often considered to be one of the beneficial fats. But as with any fat you need to be certain that you're properly controlling your diet. You don't want you OR your baby to gain too much weight.
