"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."
