Raised in the South West I grew up on fried food. When I married and moved away, I quit making it. I guess I did not like cleaning the stove top. But, every once in a while  . . .  I will crave fried chicken or french fries. A few years ago I stayed with my daughter for a few months to help her out. It was the first time I had ever heard of fried turkey! My reaction was not good, let me tell you. My son-in-law decided he wanted to give fried turkey a try so that year we made fried turkey. It was delicious!

My grandson's girlfriend gave me her mom's recipe for chicken fingers. My family was always begging me to make them. I made them at least once a week. I changed up the original recipe because I wanted a little more texture. As it turned out these are better than the original recipe using flour. These were extra crispy on the outside and moist in the center. Instead of frying them in regular oil I used peanut oil, which may have contributed to the crispiness. I was thinking the fried turkey was so good why not use peanut oil for the chicken fingers. Follow through and let's make some chicken fingers with battered french fries and sweet and sour sauce.
