I know this is an old recipe, but I did a little modification that really improved it in my opnion. First off, this is a really good recipe. I was craving something sticky or crunchy and when I read the other reviews I decided to modify this one a bit. I breaded the chicken tenderloins with Panko and placed them on a greased baking sheet. I put about half of the sauce on the top of each tenderloin and convection baked for 10 minutes. Then I flipped each tenderloin and poured the remaining sauce on each one and baked for the remaining 10 minutes. They came out great! Both crunchy and sticky. The Panko absorved a lot of the flavor so some parts were strong. A little salty for our tastes. I think next time I will just leave out the salt. Served with white rice.
