Yay! Another baked chicken recipe. Im on recipe hunting tonight, hoping to add more healthy and yummy recipes to my collection, and this recipe looks perfect. But I will definitely use chicken thigh instead of chicken breast. No one in my home like the texture of chicken breast. Anyway, thanks for sharing!

My mouth is watering. This looks spectacular. I can't wait to make it. One of my most favorite takeouts is Chinese but I would rather know how to make my own. When I make this I am going to substitute the chicken with duck. I totally agree with this breading technique. I've used it before in other dishes and it gives the meat a very tender texture which is lovely.

I really liked it, but I get the pan really hot before adding the chicken so the coating stays on and it's nice and crispy. I was in a rush so I did not put it in the oven. I added the sauce to the pan when the chicken was done and it came out just fine.

This looks absolutely fabulous! I'm putting the ingredients on my shopping list and making a batch for my daughters and sons-in-law! I know I'll have to make the fire cracker version for the ones that like a lot of heat! If it's too sweet, I'll just thin the sauce a little with water, so there's not so much sticking to the pieces of chicken. Or I could put the sauce on the side and just dip the chicken in it!

I made this for dinner the other night and it definitely competes with take-out, even though it isn't fried. My only problem with the recipe is how much honey and sugar is in the sauce. I reduced the amount, but the sauce was then too vinegar-y, so I'll probably keep looking for another recipe without so much added sugar and honey.

I love that you don't have to fry the chicken. This is what I always order when I get takeout, so I'll have to try the homemade version

This is absolutely great. It is sooo tasty! Will be making often and sharing it too!
