  • Heat the frying oil inside a wok. I added about a tsp of minced garlic for flavoring.
  • Cook chicken for about 6 minutes per batch or until chicken turns slightly brown. I used a fork and placed chicken and batter in a spoon, then dropped in the oil. This way the chicken is well coated and separated from the other chicken pieces.
