Pour over the chicken breasts, easing them up slightly so the mixture runs underneath them.
Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste and bake in the oven for 45 to 60 minutes. Serve one chicken breast per person with some of the cooking sauce drizzled over the top of the chicken. To pan fry, heat up a frying pan and add the chicken breasts - dry fry them briefly to give them a bit of colour and add the cooking sauce, mix well and cook for about 20- 30 minutes over a medium heat.
I substituted honey for the light corn syrup and found it a little too sweet, but when I added a tsp of soy sauce to it, my family thought they were in heaven.
It's a very easy low fat chicken dish, which can be pan fried or baked in the oven - I prefer the latter method, it's much easier!
I much preferred the pan fried one, it had caramelization and just plain looked better, the oven baked one was pale and unappetizing looking, although it was very good. The only change I made was to use a tablespoon of honey instead of the corn syrup which isn't widely available in Australia. I also made extra sauce as we love sauce and this sounded delicious and I am glad that I did as it was so yummy.
Apart from the low-fat aspect the method was a great taste compromise between no batter at all and the thick coating you often get at Chinese takeouts. I would NEVER suggest cooking this recipe in a crockpot, that's why it is NOT mentioned as a cooking method ANYWHERE in the recipe - only pan-fried or oven baked.
I used a mix of honey and syrup as that is what I had on hand and it worked perfectly with the lemon, not overly sweet and still allowed the tartness of the lemon to come through.
I loved the ease of baking this but would probably pan fry it next time to add colour to the chicken .I had to turn the grill on to brown as the chicken breasts stayed very uncoloured baking them. They did however come out very moist and it was only that aesthetically I prefer a bit of colour in the chicken for presentation.
Apart from that this was a fantastic meal, that we will definitely be enjoying on a regular basis.
