Ready chicken: Remove meat from bones. Cut chicken into small pieces that you could eat in one or two bites. Leave the skin on the chicken. You can use the leftover bones and parts to make broth. Set chicken pieces aside.
Coat chicken: Combine flour, salt, pepper, oregano, and garlic powder. Mix well. Coat the chicken strips with this mixture. Shake excess off.
Fry: Heat oil in a deep pan over medium heat (350 ºF [175 ºC). Deep fry the chicken until it turns golden brown (3-4 minutes on each side) --careful with hot oil splatters! Fry them three by three to avoid lowering the oil temperature too much.Place on a paper towel to drain excess oil.
Serve: Garnish with lime wedges and serve with tostones.
Chicharrones de pollo in air fryer
If you want to make them in the air fryer, instead of frying in oil, cook at 350 ºF [175 ºC] for 20 minutes, or until golden brown. They will be paler and a bit drier than fried, but still crispy and very tasty. The first time around they stuck to the bottom a bit, which was mostly solved by coating the bottom with a bit of sprayed oil.
