Fried chicken is usually coated with a seasoned batter and then fried, whether pan-fried, deep fried, or pressure fried. It is also coated with breading to add crisp. In this recipe, it will not just be about the batter. The chicken will be rubbed with salt and pepper to make sure that the taste seeps into the very meat, not just the skin. To ensure that the meat is cooked, you can prick the chicken with a toothpick for 3-5 times before frying. This will allow the chicken to be evenly cooked. No one wants a crispy chicken on the outside but raw and still bloody on the inside.
