    It's no "Mission Impossible" for actress Paula Patton to take a culinary challenge in stride. Recently, Patton found herself in hot oil—quite literally—after sharing her mother Joyce Patton's "famous" fried chicken recipe, frying 138 chicken wings for her son Julian's school. The method, however, ruffled more than a few feathers online. But as reported by CNN, Paula Patton isn't one to back down from a food fight.

    138 Chicken Wings, One Big Debate

    "It might look crazy. It is the way we do it. My mom taught me." Patton declared in a video response from Mexico, where she was vacationing with her son. The criticism ranged from questions about washing the chicken thoroughly to seasoning the cooking oil rather than the chicken itself. But Patton was unflustered and came clucking back.

    The internet cried foul—or shall we say, fowl? Some accused her of not washing the chicken well enough, while others debated her seasoning method. But Patton remained as cool as a cucumber salad on the side, explaining that the video might have looked off due to editing.

It's just the way we do it." she explained, vowing to always make her mom's chicken the way she did it, though she's open to suggestions for new recipes.

    She even welcomed the controversy with a video captioned "Peace, love and fried chicken." If that isn't the right attitude to have while getting roasted over your roasting, then what is?
