Salt and Pepper Fried Chicken

One of the Chinese Restaurants’ menus that my daughter and I always ordered back in my home country ?. It’s crunchy, buttery salty, and spicy. Just the perfect combination. You can use fish or oyster mushrooms to replace the chicken. Please follow my Instagram @jenscookingdiary (Indonesian) or @jenscookdineandtravel (English) if you like my recipes ??
