I recently acquired a recipe for chicken I want to try. The recipe says to cook the chicken in shortening in a pressure cooker. I do not own a pressure cooker. Will the chicken come out the same or similar if I simply deep fry it?
Is a pressure cooker necessary

I'm going to go with Koukouvagia on this. I know that they use pressure FRYERS at KFC so that is what the recipe probably means. There was this word of warning when I looked up the difference between the two:
"And a final word of warning: a pressure cooker isn’t a pressure fryer! Never put more then a quarter-inch of oil inside a pressure cooker. You can’t safely duplicate Kentucky Fried Chicken at home, it takes specialized equipment for that."
