In a large skillet, add canola oil over medium heat.
In a small bowl, mix together all spices. Use 1/2 of mix to season chicken. Let seasoned chicken sit at room temperature for 15 minutes.
In a large bowl, add flour and remaining seasoning mix. Toss chicken with seasoned flour and add to hot oil, 1 piece at a time. Cover pan with foil. Remove foil after 8 to 10 minutes and flip chicken. Cook until the chicken is golden brown. Remove from fryer to a paper towel-lined sheet tray. Season with salt, if desired, and serve.
