Fried chicken may not be on the menu too often if you like to keep an eye on your calories, but you can get a pretty close substitute with this flavorful baked version. Served with an easy homemade sweet 'n sour sauce that'll knock your socks off, even the pickiest eaters will have trouble resisting.
I made this dish using things that I already had available in my pantry. I had a need for a can of drained crushed pineapple for another recipe, so I saved the juice and used it in the sauce. The bread crumbs were created from some leftover croutons from the salads we ate last week. I was especially pleased with the tangy flavor of the sauce - it definitely kicked things up a notch from dipping the nuggets into ketchup or bottled BBQ sauce. Nothing wrong with that of course, you can use whatever sauce you'd like!
