    birdie #3 (andrea)'s Note:

    This is a great recipe for fried chicken to use in orange or lemon chicken. It’s not super greasy and it tastes great even cold. Thanks Pops! Great with my orange chicken sauce, Orange Chicken Sauce.

      Rock on! Fantastic! Made last night and everyone enjoyed it,including the 2 kids I was baby-sitting who are extremely picky eaters. Served with rice and sweet and sour sauce (receipe # 362295). Will use this recipe over and over again!

      Note: I did have to cook my chicken longer the second time, but that may have been b/c I had quite thick chunks of meat.
