Finishing Steps - Stovetop
Remove the chicken and set the chicken aside for 15-20 minutes while you prep fryer. For best results you want it warm, but not hot. NOTE - at this stage you can stop cooking, put the chicken in the fridge, and come back any time in the next 2-3 days to finish the rest of the recipe.
Preheat your oil to 205 - 220 C (400 - 425 F).
In a large bowl, whisk together the soy milk and acid and set aside. In a second large bowl, do the same with the dry mix.
One piece at a time, dredge the chicken, moving it from the dry mixture to the wet mixture. Repeat 2-3 times, then place on a wire rack.
Fry the chicken in small batches of 2-3 pieces, for 3-4 minutes each until nicely browned. Set on a wire rack over a sheet pan once cooked and allow to cool for 10-15 minutes.
Serve hot - plain, with lemon wedges or your favorite sauce.
