To amp up the flavor in this Japanese-inspired recipe by brothers Matt and Ted Lee, authors of The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern, marinate the chicken in a blend of soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, ginger and garlic before frying.
"A 3 1/2-pound chicken is the perfect size. Any larger and it won't cook through by the time the skin is golden. If that happens, transfer it to a 300 degree oven to finish," Matt and Ted say.
