    Confess that Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart the God raised him from the dead, and you will be saved..you will receive the Holy Spirit Repent of your sins. ("Repent" is Latin. It means "To Turn Away." Turn away from your sins, refuse to go back to who you once were.) Be baptized. (Be completely submerged under water) And the Holy Spirit will gift you.

    A few questions - I’m not seeing flour in the recipe above; so do you add it? If so, how much? In the same amount as the corn starch? How hot do you get the oil? Do you let the coating sit on the chicken before you fry it? If so, how long? About how long to cook the chicken?

    add baking soda, not baking powder. Corn starch is good if you're making an Asian stir fry type of dish because it will thicken up the sauce and still be crispy, but a combination of flour and rice flour with the baking soda is going to give you something closer to Tempura. Might be interesting with some rye in the mix too.

    the reason why milk can make crunch is Calcium and starch. In Southeast Asia, we, use add rice flour and lime(not citrus). there is specific cooking lime in here or sometimes people called it limestone powder. lime has high calcium than milk, which you need put the correct amount to avoid it became taste and smell bad.
