4. Beat egg until frothy in medium-size bowl. Dip each piece of chicken into egg, then into cereal mixture, pressing to coat.

5. Arrange chicken pieces, not touching, on prepared baking sheet and bake uncovered until well done in center- about 30 minutes.

6. To prepare sauce: Whisk together all ingredients in a small bowl.

7. As soon as chicken tests done, serve. Pass sauce separately.
