Taiwanese popcorn chicken (AKA Yan Su Ji or Salt and pepper chicken) with super crunchy coating and authentic Taiwanese fried chicken recipe.
Let’s get started!
Dice the boneless skinless chicken thighs into bite-sized pieces. Clean and pat dry basil leaves before frying them.
Cook until the chicken is cooked through and golden brown. They should be really crispy and with a crunchy coating.
In a large bowl, sprinkle the seasoning salt over the cooked chicken while they’re hot. Top it off with crushed fried basil leaves.
