  • For the Flour Coating:
    • 2 cups all-purpose flour: The base of your crispy coating.
    • 1 teaspoon each of salt, black pepper, paprika, and garlic powder: To season the flour for a crust that’s bursting with flavor.
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional): Add a spicy kick to your crust.
  • For Frying:
    • Vegetable oil or lard: Enough to fill your frying vessel 2-3 inches deep, ensuring each piece of chicken is partially submerged during frying.
