    Step 6

    Turn over when perfectly golden, about 4-5 minutes. Place these on a sheet pan in the 350 F oven to finish cooking through and repeat with the second batch of chicken, adding more oil if necessary. ( To keep them extra crispy you could place these on a rack, set overtop a sheet pan.).
