I bet this would be good if after a light dredge with the flour mixture, you dipped the chicken in an egg wash and then rolled them in Panko bread crumbs to give them a crispy crust.

Goddess, I haven't had any leftovers to freeze, but I believe you can. I would suggest making sure it is completely cool before wrapping it, or to freeze it in plasticware so you don't lose the coating. :)

Something I will consider making. I like them both together. Chicken dishes taste so good with lemon accent. This one is new to me. I think I will enjoy…Debe

I am gonna try. I love lemon chicken and this is different than mine. This sounds like it might not be as dry as alot of them.
