I can’t remember when or where I first heard about pretzel chicken. It was a long time ago. I remember putting it on my mental to make list, and over the past few years, it kept getting pushed further down. Not for any particular reason, I knew I would love the dish, but because we never seem to have pretzels and chicken in the house at the same time. To make this dish last night, I had to pry the pretzel bag away from my son and husband. There’s no other salty snack they seem to like better than crispy pretzels, except maybe for big soft pretzels.
To make the chicken, I ground up pretzels in the food processor, and then used them as breading. I fried the chicken to make them extra crispy, and then served them with a honey Dijon mustard sauce. I added a simple spring mix salad and dinner was done.
