Oil from frying a chicken

j8715 | Mar 17, 2011 06:17 AM

Hola. . .

I rarely deep fry because I don't have the best ventilation and then you have the left over oil to deal with.

Any advice on used peanut oil from a fried chicken? Is it worth saving after chicken? I think its completely done from frying fish (well maybe ok for frying more fish) but not sure about a chicken.

If you save it, how to you strain/filter out the lil burned bits at the bottom? Do you refrigerate or freeze it once its been used?
