    breezermom's Note:

    This is like the lemon chicken you get from your Chinese take-out place. The egg, cornstarch, and baking powder coating is extra light and crispy. No msg or flour involved! And remember, Zaar calculates fat and calories from the ingredient list...you won't consume all the oil listed in the recipe! Note: Marinating time is included in prep time.

      I announced to Pepper, my cockatiel, that the way things were shaping up around my kitchen, today we will be eating poultry. His look of worry was touching. I threw some birdseed at him. Delicious. Made for Everyday Is A Holiday.

      Very good - followed the recipe exactly. In spite of looking a little complicated, it went together fast and was quite easy. Family all loved it, hubby licked his plate. Will keep this as a stand-by. thank you!

      This is some delicious chicken! The chicken breasts that I used were quite thick so the outside of them browned too much by the time it was cooked through. I think that I might precut the chicken before cooking it next time. Also, the sauce is amazing and doesn't taste overly lemony. So easy and so quick to do with delicious results! Made for Went To The Market tag game. Thanks breezermom! :)
