Wouldn't a higher temp oil work better? I thought olive oil was only for low heat. The recipe doesn't advise on how hot the oil should be be before putting the chicken in.

I made a similar recipe tonight with chicken thighs, and fried it in olive oil. Olive oil can get hot enough to give this chicken a crisp, golden crust. You could, of course, use vegetable oil is you prefer. I tend to use olive oil whenever I can. Cook over medium heat and adjust flame as needed. Terry Smith
