In this way, what is the difference between a fryer chicken and a roasting chicken?
As for the differences between broiler/fryer/roaster, well, there's more to the picture than how you may want to cook them: Broilers and fryers are younger chickens that weigh 2½ to 4½ pounds. A roaster (or oven-stuffer roaster) is an older chicken and usually weighs between 5 and 7 pounds.
Also, what is the difference between a chicken and a capon? A capon is a male chicken that is gelded, or castrated, at a young age, and then fed a rich diet of milk or porridge. Larger than a chicken, a bit smaller than a turkey, but more flavorful than either, capons are full breasted with tender, juicy, flavorful meat that is well suited to roasting.
Also asked, what is the difference between a hen and a fryer?
Broilers, fryers, and roasters can be used interchangeably based on how much meat you think you'll need. They are young chickens raised for their meat, so they are fine to use for anything from poaching to roasting. You may need to adjust cooking times based on what the recipe called for and the size of your chicken.
What is a fryer?
A deep fryer is a kitchen appliance used for deep frying. Deep frying is a method of cooking by submerging food into oil at high heat, typically between temperatures of 350 °F and 375 °F (175 °C to 190 °C).
