  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
  2. Pour buttermilk into a shallow bowl. Combine flour, salt and pepper in a separate shallow bowl.
  3. Dip chicken in buttermilk and dredge in flour mixture.
  4. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook until browned; transfer to baking pan.
  5. Drain pineapple, reserving juice. Add enough water to equal 1½ cups liquid.
  6. Combine sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Add pineapple liquid, vinegar, soy sauce and ginger.
  7. Stir until cornstarch is completely dissolved. Bring to a boil and cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Pour over chicken.
