For the crispy coating you can either use breadcrumbs or you can smash up some cornflakes if you like a thicker, more rugged crispy coating, the choice is yours. The glaze is delicious too. It's not a sauce, so don't expect your chicken to be swimming in liquid, it's a thick, super-tasty glaze to give the chicken a delicious taste and it adds moisture to it too. 

This recipe is very easy and once you've made it, you'll want to come back to it and make it again.
