I love olive oil, but had never used it for frying. I always thought that the olive oil would turn bitter at high temperatures. I never wanted to try it because who wants to cook up an entire meal to have to throw it away. I learned that all you need to do is cook on medium heat! Oh my a whole new world has been opened to me. Carbonell provided me with samples of their olive oil as well as sponsored this post to help them tell you about the DareToCarbonell Challenge. I decided to take the #DareToCarbonell Challenge and fry some chicken! I have been craving juicy chicken tenders since my husband cheated on his diet and went to Rib City. I sat there and watched him eat his 1/2 pound of chicken, and the cravings began. I figured if I made it from home, I could escape all of the added lard and vegetable oils that are not good for you. I love controlling what goes into my body.

Use Carbonell Extra VirginOlive Oil for salads, dips, marinades and drizzling over finished dishes.

I actually used this in my Lemon Cherry Olive Oil Ice Cream Recipe.
