    Directions

    1. Bring chicken to room temperature (so as not to cool the oil when you put it in the pan). Cut the chicken into chunks if needed, rinse well and pat thoroughly dry. It is very important because the drier the chicken, the better it will fry and the safer you will be from oil splash.
    2. Season the chicken with salt and pepper and then coat thoroughly in cornstarch.
    3. Heat the oil in a frier pan until very hot. Once almost smoking, carefully lower the chicken into the oil, and allow to cook for several minutes. Once cooked, take out of the pan and place in a strainer for a minute or two. Then place back into the oil and fry a second time, it makes it more crunchy.
