  1. In a large frying pan, add oil until the oil is about one inch (2.5cm) deep, and heat over medium-high.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a medium sized bowl.
  3. In another medium sized bowl, break the two eggs and slightly beat them.
  4. Place the chicken pieces into the bowl with the eggs and toss to coat.
  5. Using a fork, transfer the chicken pieces to the flour mixture and toss/stir to coat pieces evenly with seasoning.
  6. Space the chicken pieces around the frying pan or sauce pan in a single layer, and cook until golden and crisp - about 5 minutes in total. You might need to cook it in two batches depending on the size of your pan.
  7. While the chicken is cooking, mix together all the ingredient for the dip, and season to taste. 
  8. When the chicken is cooked, remove from the oil and place on paper towel to drain off the excessive oil, then serve with the dip.
