these aren't very crispy but, we loved the flavor. Worked best with little bite sized or sort of popcorn sized chicken.
Chicken was rubbery and not very crispy. Flavor was good. Maybe I just didn’t cook it right? 🤷🏽‍♂️

Honestly it tastes alright, but when cooking it everything just kinda feel apart.
Super easy, I used chicken tenders instead of cutting up a chicken breast. Will definitely make again.

Really good, really easy and everyone loved it!
Awesome flavor. Burned the chicken but that was probably due to operator error
I changed it up a bit based on reviews. I cut chicken into large chunks and marinated for a half hour. I would have done longer if I had planned ahead. I poured bread crumbs right in the bag with the marinade and tossed around to coat the chicken. I buttered a glass baking dish and then put the chicken pieces in. I zested some more lemon over and baked at 450 for about twenty five minutes. My picky kids are it without any arguments.
Flavor was OK, but the actual cooking was a mess. Breading came off & burned in pan. I think skipping flour & breading with just cornstarch may work better.

Like others have said the breading comes off easily and the oil instructions made me burn half of the batch will not make again.

Pretty good. I let it marinate for a half hour and that was plenty of time. The only problem was that the breading fell off during cooking.

Turned out gummy and chalky

Wonderful dish...easy to make and very tasty...would add more cornstarch to give it more crispy texture

Thank you for sharing the recipe, it was delicious. My parents are teaching me how to cook and are letting me pick recipes I want to make. I chose this one, and it was a big success with them too.

Amazing! Simply amazing! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Both me and my girlfriend enjoyed it. Use of extra honey makes it awesome too but depends on one's taste.

My family loves this recipe. Use a little extra oil, and the outside will crisp up very nicely. Definitely make the honey/lemon dipping sauce to drizzle on the chicken and/or a side of rice.

It's not as crispy as you would think, but the breading gives it a nice texture and the flavor is just amazing! My boyfriend absolutely loved it. The extra honey dipping sauce is perfect as well.
