Taiwanese-style Popcorn Chicken

I had my first taste of this a long time ago when hubby and I were in Taiwan.  They were delicious!  I've tried to make them, but without success, it never got close to what we had before.

This time, however, hubby declared the dish a success (although slightly on the salty side so next time I will probably reduce the salt by half)...

I basically followed this video with a few changes...

First I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs.  Instead of red pepper and white powder, I used all black pepper.  I also used "AA" starch, which was what my mom used for "breaded" pork chop when I was a kid.  I totally omitted the basil.  After deep frying, I sprinkled more black pepper on the chicken.
