Roll the chicken in the seasoned flour until completely covered. You can double coat it for a more crispy texture.
Add the frying oil to a deep fryer or a large pot.
Place the chicken pieces in the fryer or pot, 2 pieces at a time, to not overcrowd the oil as the temperature will drop and your chicken become soggy.
