1. What is the secret to keeping fried chicken crispy?

The key is completely drying the chicken before covering it in flour or batter. When fried, this adds to a crispier texture.

2. What oil makes chicken crispy?

Oils with a high smoke point, like vegetable oil, canola oil, or peanut oil, are ideal for frying chicken as they maintain the desired crispiness.

3. What makes frying more crispy?

Maintaining a constant oil temperature, using a dry coating, and avoiding crowding the frying pan to allow appropriate air circulation are all necessary to achieve crispiness.

4. How do you make crispy chicken without overcooking it?

Having a good hot oven is important for getting the skin crispy. It is preheated to 425 degrees by convection. Convection baking speeds up the cooking process and makes the chicken's skin considerably crispier by circulating air around it as it cooks.

5. Why is my chicken never crispy?

Common reasons for lack of crispiness include insufficient drying, low oil temperature or using a wet batter that doesn't crisp up properly during frying.
