Story Behind this Recipe

Lately I've often made salt-fried chicken using chicken thighs. I was wondering if I could make it with chicken breasts keeping the same flavor and texture. I tried making it but it turned out to be a little bit hard.
I'd heard that adding mayonnaise makes the chicken tender before, so I tried it. It was right!
