Cook With Aussie is a YouTube channel dedicated to easy and delicious home-cooked meals. From gummy bears to seafood curry, the nameless man behind the videos gives easy to follow instructions with fabulous results. In the video below, he shows his technique for getting the perfect crisp on fried chicken. 

Here is everything he used in his video: 
1kg chicken (about 2 lbs), cut into 8 portions if purchased whole
1 Cup flour
1/2 Cup instant mashed potato powder
1 Tbs salt (table salt)
1 Tbs mixed dried herbs
½ Tsp ground black pepper
¼ Tsp cayenne pepper
½ Tbs garlic powder
1 Tbs onion powder
2 Eggs
¼ Cup water
Canola oil for frying

Another component in getting a good crisp is in the oil. New oil won't fry as well, and neither will old oil. Adding a little bit of oil previously used to fry into a batch of new oil will help you get good penetration. You can then save the oil for future use, but after multiple fries, you might notice some foam along the top, or that you cannot get it to the right temperature without significant smoking. If that is the case, it's time to replace it. But remember to keep a spoonful to add to the next oil batch!
