As I read through the reviews just before cooking this I thought uh-oh!! Almost evryone said they had a hard time with the "batter", I thought I will fix the problem before I have it! I follwed the recipe like it said but before frying the chicken, after dipping it in the batter, I dipped it in a basic flour mixture to coat over the batter!! this worked out very well! It browned nicely... and didn't stick at all!!! Mind you it has to be a good medium-hot lard you are frying it in!!and youare only browning the outside of the chicken not cooking it!! It cooks in the slow cooker!


What a waste of a can of soup. The "batter" peeled off the chicken but stuck to the bottom of the pan, leaving the meat white and my pan black. In retrospect, I see no reason to use the soup at all, since a basic dredge of flour, salt and pepper will create a better fry-crust and won't stick to the pan. To add insult to injury, as I was scooping up the frozen concentrate for the sauce, I saw a recipe for the exact same orange glaze on the side of the can. Dang! So next time, save money, time, and dishes. Just fry your chicken as usual, scoop on the glaze in the same pan and have your dinner in 10 minutes instead of three hours.


This recipe is a 5-star with corn starch in the orange sauce (add 1 tsp to chicken broth before it is heated). We served with rice. Also I used a whole can of campbell's chicken broth with the entire small minute maid OJ container (6 oz?) and brown sugar to taste (several tablespoons). Absolutely delicious!!
