STEP 2: 
Fry
In a large deep skillet or saucepan, heat enough oil to deep fry to 375°F. Dip the chicken strips into the batter, letting the excess drain off. Carefully place the chicken strips, a few at a time, into the hot oil and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until golden brown. Turn the chicken strips and continue cooking for 2 to 3 minutes until crispy and cooked through. Chicken is done when it feels firm to the touch and a meat thermometer inserted in the center reaches 170°F. Transfer to a wire rack.

TIP Show/Hide
Mirin is a Japanese sweet rice wine with mild acidity. Gochujang is a savory, spicy, sweet chili paste used as a condiment and flavoring in Korean dishes. You can find it in most Asian grocery stores. Kimchi is a traditional Korean side dish of cabbage and vegetables. You can find this in the produce section of most grocery stores. This batter is also gluten free because it uses rice flour and cornstarch. Use gluten free soy sauce for a totally gluten-free meal. You can use a wooden spoon to tell when your oil is hot enough to fry without a thermometer. Use it to touch the bottom of the skillet; bubbles will form around the handle.
