Good question. I try to remove a lot of oil from things I fry by blotting well with paper toweling. My husband loves fried okra and fried fish but I don't make that kind of thing often. I usually just eat foods like that on rare occasion and adjust the rest of my day to accommodate for the calories - and not worry about it. I guess my theory is that if you don't "deny" yourself of every eating pleasure but just limit the "bad" stuff to an occasional meal, you will stick to your diet plan better then if you try to just do without completely.
You could also try to make a few pieces of chicken oven fired for yourself when the family is having fried chicken.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
