Accidentally the Best Baked Chicken Nuggets Ever

Accidentally discovered this while playing around with Chinese restaurant classics. My nugget-expert daughter loved them. I use the marinade from http://www.recipezaar.com/Sweet-and-Sour-Pork-43587 (minus the extra salt) and the flouring and baking technique from http://www.recipezaar.com/Baked-Lemon-Chicken-With-Chinese-Lemon-Sauce-194890. The chicken works great with either sauce but my picky kid just loved the chicken by itself. Infact she liked it so much I had to post the recipe. All measurements are approximate; vary the spices based upon your own taste.

    This is a basic recipe that provide a simple and tasty dinner, I doubled this recipe as written. I varied my seasonings a bit by adding some cumin and curry to our taste. The children all liked this way of serving chicken tenderloins. Next time I will double the soy sauce. Thanks for sharing this recipe Jes32.
