Lemon Chicken

I was sent this recipe from a friend who loves it.  I made it and found the lemon to brown sugar ration off.  I guess it needs more tweeking...try at will!

4 lb chicken breasts, cut into large pieces
2 C. fresh lemon juice
2 C. flour
2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 C. corn oil
2 TBSP lemon zest
1/4 C. brown sugar (very important or the chicken will be too sour)
1/4 C. chicken stock
1 tsp. lemon extract

Combine chicken and lemon juice in zip lock bag. marinate in refrigerator overnight. Drain chicken. In a plastic bag, combine flour, salt, paprika and pepper; shake well to mix. Put a few pieces of chicken in bag at a time; shake to coat well. Preheat oven to 350'F. Heat corn oil in frying pan. Fry chicken pieces, a few at a time, for 5 minutes on each side until browned. Arrange chicken pieces in a single layer in a large shallow baking dish. Sprinkle with lemon zest and brown sugar. Mix chicken stock and lemon extract; pour around chicken. Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until tender - Makes 6 servings.
