Fried Chicken. I tried once and despite my best efforts, the coating came off in the pan and burned, and the chicken was not cooked enough. There’s a reason why there are fried chicken restaurants everywhere. Also, pizza places. (all my pizzas have been disappointing, no matter how I tried.)
Oddly, we make a huge tray of baklava every Christmas, and it’s not at all difficult IMO. We’ve made it for years, all you do is layer and pour hot liquid over and bake. The hardest part is cutting neat little triangles and putting them into cupcake liners for presentation.
I’ve made potstickers for years using eggroll wrappers for skins, and a little turnover crimper to seal. Then I freeze on wax paper on a tray (not letting them touch, very important!). Now, I pick up a little bag or two from the freezer section of, of all places, the Dollar Tree. They are scrumptious!
