NOTE: I like to debone my own chicken breasts so that I can roast the bones and skins for stock later. I freeze them until I have enough to cover a baking sheet then use the instructions in my post on making Chicken Stock here.

Tried this recipe today and whilst I adjusted the quantities of the ingredients a little (much less sugar, less hoisin so that it was less salty and sweet) and added toasted sesame seeds on top, I have to say that the orange sauce is absolutely yummy. The baked chicken was a little floury for our liking so perhaps there isn't a need for the first layer of the flour? All in all, a good recipe although some tweaking is needed. Thank you for sharing!
