I use a little ap flour, plus panko or saltine cracker crumbs and a water oil & egg wash, and it comes out crispy. I double dip it, and use 400-425 degrees and bake it.

So if I understand this right, we need to mix the cornstarch and club soda into a thin batter (something like a pancake batter), dip the chicken pieces in this and put them in the fryer. Right?

Thanks again!

I've always found panko bread crumbs to be very crispy. Would love to try the cornstarch though. I've had chicken fried in a cornstarch coating at PF Changs, and it was VERY light and crispy. I suspect that the OP is looking for more crunch though. Panko very much!
