  • NOTE: Recipe might vary depending on size of chicken breasts
  • NOTE: Cornflour to Italian season should be 2 Tbsp to 1 Tbsp ratio whatever total amount you use to coat chicken.
  • NOTE: Also tried recipe by pouring sauce oven chicken and baking it on low in oven (120 - 150 degrees) and found while it was still tasty, it did not have the same taste/consistency as that done on the stove top.
  • NOTE: I covered the chicken while simmering on the stove top but you might need to stir every now and then to make sure it does stick.
