    CarrolJ's Note:

    This chicken dish was created for RSC #15. I gave step by step instructions but it is an extremely easy and new way to make chicken for your family or guests. If you have never coated meat with Panko I think you will be as pleasantly pleased. Flavor abounds…encased in a crunchy coating and then is drizzled with a slightly sweet lemony savory sauce. Marinating not included in prep time.

      Tangy citrus flavor with an oriental flair. Chicken and citrus flavors blend together well. Used fresh ground black pepper in the marinade and coating directions. In case you can't find them Panko bread crumbs are available in Bulk Food stores. I poured the reserved marinade into a 2-cup measuring cup then added the water to measure 1-1/3 cups. After drizzling the sauce over each serving I added a little extra fresh lemon zest for presentation. Next time, and there will definitely be a next time, I will use homemade chicken broth for the water but wanted to make recipe exactly as written for the RSC #15 contest.

      I wanted to make this for RSC but I am sorry to say I ran out of time, but I was determind to make it and review it so we had it for supper and we loved it. I had mine with the sauce on the side, but DH had his smotherd in the sauce he said the best way to eat it. once again I had to remind him that i'ts only 5 stars you can give not 10 LOL. even without the sauce the lemon flavour comes through. I managed to get the real bread crumbs for this mine were called ottogi bread crumbs but the girl in the chinese supermarket said they were just the same, and it was so worth it so crispy. It's very easy to put together, I marinated it for a bit more than the three hours, and the baking time was just right. Thank you for a wonderful recipe, and I am so sorry I ran out of time.

      It looks like a long recipe that'll take forever, but it was actually a snap to do. Tasty, and actually tasted better the next day for lunch.
