Questions I have include (but aren't limited to): what parts of the chicken to use (wings, drumsticks, breasts, the whole bird, etc.), preparation of the chicken (rinse, salt, brine, season, etc.), what kind of batter/breading to use, what kind of oil to use and how much, oil temperature, and what kind of cooking vessel works best (I was planning on using a deep cast iron skillet, but have a wide range of other pots and pans, and could maybe even borrow an electric deep-fryer).
