Notes


  • Chicken thighs will give you tender and moister meat with more flavor. Make sure to cut them into 1-inch cubes for the best results.
  • Don’t over-crowd the pan when frying your chicken. Cook in batches if needed.
  • Be sure that your oil is hot enough (350 F degrees) before you add the chicken so that you can get the crispy texture. The oil temperature will drop immediately when you add the chicken. Bring the temperature back between batches.
