Chow Down with Carla Hall

Co-host of “The Chew” and “Top Chef” alum Carla Hall is aiming to open a Nashville-style chicken restaurant in New York with the help of crowd-funding source Kickstarter, according to Fox News. She explains the secret to her “hot chicken” is in the oil. “Hot chicken is typically a Southern fried chicken tossed in a hot oil,” said Hall. “We make that oil with the canola oil, and then it has cayenne, smoked paprika, garlic powder and a little bit of sugar.” For more recipes from Carla Hall using canola oil, visit
