Q:

What's an easy way to make crunchy chicken for our family?

"Could I just use chicken pieces and dip them into flour  and nothing else to make them crunchy? I plan to deep fry them - We all like the crunchy taste of the chicken we purchase but I would prefer to make them myself and save some money. Can you suggest another EASY way to do this? I would appreciate a response. Thank you."
