Move over, popcorn chicken, there's a new addictive fried chicken bite in town (if the town is Taiwan). Salt and pepper chicken is one of the country's most popular street foods, and unlike chargrilled blood sausage skewers, pork buns, hand-pulled noodles and other things I'll be eating at the Taste Taiwan Culinary Tour, you can actually make this in your kitchen at home.

Serve with any dipping sauce you like, but chili-garlic sauce right out of the jar works fine for me.
