Do I need a fryer for fried chicken?

FineSugar | Apr 29, 201611:59 AM     11

I can make a killer fried chicken for my family of four in my heavy-bottomed dutch oven, but this weekend, I'm making it for 15 people, and am wondering if I should break down and buy a fryer to help cook that much of it. Do you have any thoughts or expertise in this area? If a fryer is the way to go, do you have a suggestion for one you really like? I'd love to hear your large-batch fried chicken suggestions!
