Personal Notes:

Tip 1: Use a thermometer. Oil MUST reach 350 before frying. Use a deep fryer or enough oil to cover a large pot. Please use ONLY CANOLA AND/OR PEANUT OIL to achieve the right coating. Vegetable oil can make your chicken gummy.

Tip 2: If using my flipping technique, once you place chicken in a hot skillet with oil, let cook 1 minute only then using tongs, flip over. Do this every 2 minutes to achieve a golden brown crust.
