There are lots of great things about eating out. Not having to cook, being in different surroundings, and enjoying restaurant food are all great reasons to eat out. However, eating in restaurants a lot can get expensive.
Maybe eating out is such a treat for you because it is the only time you get to enjoy your favorite fried chicken recipe. A lot of people have a favorite meal that they like to order but would you still want to eat out if you could recreate your favorite fried chicken recipe at home?
Why Eating at Home is Special Too
Even if you associate eating in a restaurant with a special occasion, and most of us do, there is a lot to be said for eating at home. Eating your dinner somewhere comfortable and not having to drive to somewhere else for takeout food or for a sit-down dinner saves time and money.
Talking about saving money, did you know that by using copycat restaurant recipes, you can often make the exact same meal for less than a third of the restaurant price?
If you make your favorite copycat meal at home, you can also make tasty side dishes. A side salad might cost five dollars in a restaurant but you can make one for under a dollar. A soda can cost a couple of dollars in a restaurant but you can have the exact same soda in the comfort of your own home for much less.
Making restaurant copycat recipes is not just about saving money but you can see the appeal of saving your hard-earned cash for other things. It is always fun to make new dishes and if you are making a copycat version of your favorite restaurant dinner, you will already know how it is going to taste.
Imagine the delight on your family’s faces when they see their favorite food and imagine how impressed they will be when they realize you know how to make their favorite dinner.
There is a reason why chefs are not forthcoming about how they made your delicious fried chicken. If everyone knew how simple it was to make copycat recipes there would be a lot more home cooking and a lot fewer happy restaurant owners!
You can ask the waiter what ingredients are used to make your fried chicken but it is highly unlikely that he will know exactly how the dish is made (else he would be in the kitchen making it!)
