Tips to make and keep things crispy.

Have one hand for the wet, one hand for the dry - then you don't get yourself all breaded.

The oil needs to be up to temperature before adding food in. To test the temperature of the oil, either use a digital thermometer or you can drop a bit of the breading in and if it doesn't 'fizzle' around the edges, the oil isn't hot enough

Cook in batches to not overcrowd the pan as that keeps the heat more even and fries to perfection

You can test your perfect cooking timing after 5 minutes by slicing the first piece cooked in half, and check it's cooked all the way through. 
Some items need 7 mins, some may need more depending on thickness

To avoid what you've already cooked from going soggy, place a rack on top of the paper towel to allow for continual air flow. Whenever you place cooked breaded items onto a paper towel, steam is trapped and that's what makes breaded food get wet and go soggy.
