Because of the reviews, I decided to use panko crumbs and simply bake the chicken at 500 degrees using another recipe guideline I found on here (I searched for baked panko). I guesstimated on the sauce ingredients as I just had regular orange juice (used a little corn starch to thicken). My husband repeatedly told me how much he loved this (very unusual for him). I might add some green onions next time.
