What a wonderful recipe! I'm so proud to make this for my husband, who absolutely loved it. I've been cooking for some time, and my repertoire is quite diverse, but this recipe is vastly different from everything else I make. I tried my best to follow the recipe, except that I didn't have any lemon so I just added more orange juice. More specifically, I used the juice and zest of one medium orange. I also used coconut palm sugar instead of brown sugar because we don't use any other sweeteners in our home. I used 3/4 cup instead of one cup and I think it was still a little too sweet for my taste. However, my husband thought it was perfect. Next time I'll try a heaping 1/2 cup instead. Instead of flour, I used all cornstarch for the breading along with some salt, pepper and garlic powder.
I sauteed some carrots, green onions, mushrooms, red and green bell peppers, and asparagus on the side. Instead of adding the cooked chicken to the sauce,I added the veggies, chicken and sauce on top of cooked rice. I did this per the suggestions of other reviewers and it was wonderful this way.
Thank you so much for this beautiful recipe. I will serve it the next time I have dinner guests! And even sooner for my sweet husband!
