When oil is hot enough dip chicken pieces into the batter, allow excess to drip off, then lower carefully into the oil, fry larger pieces for 18 mins & smaller ones for 15 mins, do this in 2 piece batches, keep cooked chicken in a warm oven set low on a rack until you have cooked the last 2 pieces, leave in the oven for a few mins before serving.
