  6. Fry each side for at least 5 minutes or until golden brown; then turn and fry the other side until golden brown as well.
  7. Remove the chicken pieces from the pan and place into a colander to drain excess oil or a tray lined with kitchen towels or serviettes to absorb excess oil.
  8. Serve the chicken with your meal ready to eat. Enjoy!
