Remove skin (optional) from chicken and trim any excess fat. Wash chicken with vinegar and/or lemon or lime and rinse with water. Pat chicken dry with paper towel and set aside.
Add a drizzle of olive oil to the chicken, and season well with seasoning salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, black pepper, and one crushed chicken bouillon cube.
In a large bowl, whisk together the ingredients to dredge the chicken – flour, cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, dried thyme and black pepper.
Dredge or lightly coat the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Repeat for all chicken pieces, then transfer to a lined sheet pan with a wired rack and let rest for 5 minutes.
Allow the chicken to cook until one side is golden brown, then using tongs, carefully flip the chicken. Remove and place on a clean wired rack to drain excess oil
Combine all the ingredients for the sauce in a small saucepan and bring to a simmer on medium high heat.
