  • Adjusting the heat goes a long way to frying perfect chicken if your cooking on the stove top.
  • Remember if you are only frying a few pieces to adjust the time accordingly.
  • Do not overcrowd the skillet or deep fryer.
  • If you dont hear a nice moderate sizzle it means you must turn up the heat.
  • To start off frying test the oil with a bit of batter it should sizzle quick but not splatter too much or the crust will be burnt on the outside before the chicken inside is cooked.
  • Covering and frying for the majority of the time gives a succulently moist chicken and increasing the heat at the end gives a crisp coating.
  • To get an even coating you can also put the flour mixture in a large food zipper bag, add all the chicken nd shake well after sealing the bag. Do not press on the pieces with hands
