Homemade Chicken Fries Tips

 You can make burger king chicken fries at home by following these easy tips:

  • Freeze the chicken fries for a few minutes after breading, so the coating will stick better during frying.
  • Use ideal oil, perfect for deep-frying.
  • Accurate temperature is vital. 375˚F (190˚C) is the optimal range. Not too hot or too low.
  • Fry the chicken in batches always bringing the temperature back to 375˚F (190˚C) before adding the next batch.
  • Put the frozen chicken strips to the oil one at a time and lay them straight so they’ll fry up in the right shape.
