Your oil may tend to get too hot. If it starts to smoke.stop and turn down the heat until it gets back to 375F.
Never place fried foods on a paper towel. The paper towel gets oil soaked and your food gets soggy sitting on it. Use a cooling rack for optimal crispiness.
When flipping the chicken pieces during the baking process BEWARE: those red pepper flakes and apple cider vinegar may come up and punch you in the face.
Garnish with sesame seeds and/or green onions.
