  5. Reduce heat to medium and let sauce thicken until desired consistency achieved (about 4-5 minutes)

Note:

This dish tastes best when served immediately. Reheating will cause the coating of the chicken to lose its crisp texture.

If preferred, Chicken can be fried in advance and then tossed in with the sauce at time of serving to save time
