Dr Green says:

after frying at 140’C for 4 minutes, how long does the chicken need to be outside before frying at 170’C? do we have to wait till it cools down before frying again?

Felix Chee says:

hmm. i think personally is better to put the chicken piece by piece into the starch and make sure is all coated..and can use light soy sauce instead..and we can put a little paprika to spice up a bit..
