I often throw it out, give it to the cats, or save it thinking I can use it for something...but then don't. Ideas?
Andrea, chicken fat can be used for frying meat and vegetables, greasing roasting pans, and adding a little chicken flavor to dishes. We would probably shy away from using chicken fat to fry an entire meal, but we do like the idea of using small pats (like butter) to flavor an otherwise vegetarian dish. Rice and steamed vegetables, for instance, or noodles with squash.
Other ideas for Andrea? How do you use up chicken fat?
