the sauce is great and freezes well
I liked the breading on the chicken but the sauce was a little too sweet for me to have a lot of. I used a candy/oil thermometer in my pan when I fried the oil, although I had a hard time keeping the oil above 350 they still cooked just fine. The leftover chicken went in my salad for lunch the next day.
This is good!
You mentioned an apple rice pilaf salad that you pair with the chicken. Can't find the recipe. Help
We tried this with Lime Curd Instead of Lemon Curd. Should have rolled it in coconut since we added the lime.
Very easy recipe to make with great results.
