Fried Chicken is one of the best all-time favorite food throughout the world. Whenever I go to the night market, one of the usual food that I would get is a fried chicken, here I will be sharing with you – how to make a fried chicken recipe similar to the famous Taiwanese Hot Star Fried Chicken!
Taiwanese Fried Chicken, What’s the Differences?
Taiwanese Fried Chicken is different than the regular fried chicken that they come in crunchy huge flat pieces of chicken seasoned with their blend of spices. One of the ingredients that make the crunchy coating unique is tapioca flour (also the same ingredient to make boba pearls) as you can see with your naked eyes that the appearance of the outer layer is different than the regular fried chicken. Using tapioca flour simply makes the coating thicker and, everyone loves that layer of crispy flour, isn’t it?
