I'll be making fried chicken, any help is appreciated. Thank you!
For fried chicken, cornflour should be fine. In fact, I can't imagine using cornstarch to coat chicken for frying.
Mmm! This is an interesting question as cornflour is the same as cornstarch if you lived in Britain or Australia. Also some Asian countries do use cornstarch to make their chicken crispy - such as crispy chicken chicken wings which are delicious!
This is what I like about the Hotline, wendyfouracres -- always something to learn from other cooks. Thanks!

Cornstarch makes a shatteringly crispy crust. Very common in Asian recipes. Hopefully you found a good substitute.
Cornflour and cornstarch are in fact the same thing. Cornstarch is the American term; cornflour is the British English term. (Like plain flour is all purpose and caster sugar is granulated sugar.)
Hello, thank you for all of your help. I live in Britain so I used the cornflour I already had and the recipe turned out beautifully :)
