The secret to McDonalda€™s fries, one of the few foods that please both toddlers and four-star chefs, is that there is no secret.
Queries made by this writer about the recipea€™s whereabouts were met with a€?we dona€™t talk about thata€? and a€?I cana€™t tell you anything,a€? by Emily-Post-Meets-The-French-Resistance spokesperson, Andrea Foote.

When the chicken has soaked in the brine solution for 20 minutes, coat each piece with the flour mixture and then arrange each piece on a plate or baking sheet.

So if we use 8 NoDoz tablets that have been crushed to powder with a mortar and pestle (or in a bowl using the back of a spoon) we get 44 milligrams of caffeine in a 12-ounce serving or 36 milligrams in each of the 10-ounce servings we make with this recipe. The unique flavor of Coke absolutely requires the inclusion of this Vietnamese cinnamon oil (usually sold for aromatherapy), but only a very small amount.
