This tasty recipe not only shows you the trick to preserving the moisture but also comes with a delicious asian inspired sauce!

Did you know:

Why do we coat chicken in flour before cooking? Coating the chicken breasts in flour mainly prevents the chicken from sticking to the pan. But what it also does is preserve the moisture in the chicken, and don’t we usually complain about chicken breasts being too dry and never can they compete with the moist, tasty drumsticks? Well then, you needn’t complain about that anymore! Coat your chicken in flour before pan frying them to also add that delicious crunch to every bite! And here’s a well kept secret, why not season your flour with your favourite spices before coating your chicken, this will add that extra yumminess to your chicken!
