This recipe is by the wonderful chef and cookbook author, Joan Nathan. I have nothing but praise for all of her recipes I've tried. This one is one of my husband's favorites and deserving of a special occasion!
1Beat eggs with 2 teaspoons water. In a separate bowl, mix the breadcrumbs with the salt and pepper. Dip the chicken, one piece at a time, in to egg mixture, then the breadcrumb mixture.
Heat the oil in a heavy skillet and brown the chicken pieces on all sides, then remove to a baking pan.
2Heat the oven to 325 F.
Mix the cup of hot water (I usually boil it first in a tea pot or in the microwave.) with the honey, orange juice and ginger.
3Pour the sauce over the chicken. Bake uncovered in a parchment lined baking pan for 45 minutes, basting occasionally.
