  1. Mix flour, garlic powder, salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Beat eggs and lemon juice together in a separate bowl.
  2. Heat 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  3. Dip the chicken pieces into the flour mixture, then the egg mixture, and again into the flour mixture.
