2. Coat the marinated chicken with 0.5 cups of all-purpose flour and 0.5 cups of potato starch in a bowl. Add another light sprinkle of Szechuan Seasoning (0.5 tablespoons). Set for another 5-10 minutes.
3. In the deep fryer or pot, heat the oil to 170 degrees Celcius. Add the coated chicken marinate and fry until it is golden.
