Transfer both chicken pieces to the hot oil and fry around 300F until the internal temperature reaches up to 155F, around 16-18minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack. Take 100ml of the hot oil and pour over cayenne. Dip the chicken to coat while the oil is still hot and return to cooling rack, serve with biscuit, butter.
