    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.

    It was not sticky at all but the taste was really good. I will definitely do it again. Maybe the next time I will cut the chicken tenders and cook them in a skillet. However, I love the taste of the sauce (it was just like the Asian restaurants here). Thanks!

    This chicken was not "sticky" at all. All the stickiness burned up on the foil. Just not what I was expecting.

    We enjoyed this very much! Made as directed. It wasn't really what I would call sticky but good, none the less. Had with steamed rice and veggies on the side. Served with a little soy sauce on top of all. It was a tasty meal. I think I might try it as an appetizer with wings and little drumsticks for our next football party. Thanks Beth!
