This is a very good recipe. I think the instructions, though, need a little tweaking. Even though the instructions didn't indicate it, I drained off quite a bit of the leftover oil after browning the chicken and that was an essential step. Without that, I think the sauce would be a bit too greasy for our tastes. I followed the cooking instructions and didn't have a problem with simmering the meat in the sauce as the sauce didn't completely cover the meat so the tops were still crunchy. However, I did end up having to add some cornstarch to really get the sauce to thicken up. I used thighs instead of the breast cutlets so that certainly increased the preliminary cooking time as well. If you're using thighs or thicker breasts, this isn't a quick meal. I think it's really important to season your flour mixture fully. I used salt and pepper and lemon pepper this time. Next time I think I'll try a bit of cayenne to give it a little bite. Nice recipe!
