Once you do not see the white corn starch powder add in 2 tbsp of oil.

Step 4: Frying
In a pot or wok, heat the oil to 350F and add in the coated chicken one at a time using a fork. Fry for about 4-5 min or until golden brown. If you want crispier skin, fry for about another min. or so. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain on a paper towel or rack.
