Notes

#1. To ensure that the chicken is fried evenly, fry it batch by batch rather than in one go.
#2. If you prefer crispy chicken, add more oil to the pan and deep fry the chicken. 
#3. Once the chicken has been fried, remove the oil from the pan and add the 1 tbsp oil from the same oil for the rest of the recipe.
#4. Add salt carefully since soy sauce is salty and might become too salty if you add more salt.
