Generally, when substituting canola oil for butter in baked products, you can use ¾ cup of canola oil for every cup of butter. If you do a straight conversion (cup for cup), you will need to slightly reduce one of the other liquid ingredients in the recipe. You want to retain the consistency of your dough or batter.
Additionally, can I use butter instead of oil to cook chicken? Butter, Oil Don't Mix They're not fats, so they won't melt together with the oil; they'll separate, burn and smoke just as vigorously as if butter were the only fat. The sad result will be a burnt carbon flavor to the chicken that's the complete opposite of the desired result.
