  • 1 cup potato starch
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon oil to use in the batter
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon oil for frying


  • Cut chicken breast into pieces that are approximately 1-2 inches.
  • Whisk together in a large bowl the potato starch, baking powder, salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, eggs, water, and oil.
  • Soak the chicken breast pieces in the batter for about 3 minutes.
  • Heat oil in a frying pan on medium/low heat until oil is hot.
  • Pan fry the battered chicken pieces for 3-5 minutes on each side (until golden brown)
