My family really liked this recipe. The sauce is a good compliment, I was afraid it'd taste too much like honey, but not at all. Quick and easy to make. I'll be making this one again soon.

We both loved these! My husband must have mentioned their great flavor at least three times as he was eating. The sauce is a perfect accompaniment. I used panko because they were the first bread crumbs that came to hand, but I'll probably try regular ones the next time. A definite keeper.
