--Cook's Note--
Nonstick Tricks
With a non-stick skillet and nonstick cooking spray, you can get the appealing color and flavor of pan-fried chicken without all the oil. For best results, spay the skillet before heating.

Nonstick cooking spray is real cooking oil, mixed with small amounts of propellants in an aerosol can. The spray disperses oil in a far thinner layer than would be possible with regular oil or butter. A one second spray contains about .6 grams of fat. You can make your own nonstick cooking spray at home with a refillable canister sold at kitchen and household stores.

An inexpensive nonstick pan can give years of service if it is carefully maintained.

*Use only plastic or wooden utensils -- not metal, which can mar the finish.
*Wash gently with hot soapy water and a sponge or plastic scrubber
*Do not store other pans or dishes directly on the nonstick surface. If you must stack pans, protect the nonstick surface with a kitchen towel or paper towels.
