Pretzel Chicken

Ever have one of those why not moments? Or ever have a half a bag of something hanging around that you do not want to waste? This was one of those times. A half a bag of pretzels meet chicken and happiness was created. Great texture, taste, and contrast combine to make this chicken simple but delicious.

Full time: 45-60 minutes
Serves 4

You will need:

2 eggs
1 1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken tenders
2-3 cup miniature pretzels (or equivalent)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese  
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground black pepper

Agave or honey for finishing

Let us begin:

Preheat oven to 350', spay a cooking sheet lightly with cooking spray and set aside for a moment.

In a bowl beat the two eggs, set aside.

In a zip top or plastic bag place pretzels.

Seal and whack with a rolling pin or flat mallet until they are nicely crumbled.

Pour into a bowl. Add in Parmesan, salt, and pepper. Stir to fully blend.

Carefully dip chicken into egg.

Than into pretzel mix, making sure to coat both sides.

Lay on baking sheet.

Repeat until all chicken it coated. Throw out remaining mixture.

Bake in oven for 35-45 minutes until fully cooked thru.

Remove from oven and let set 1-2 minutes on baking sheet.

Move to serving plate, drizzle lightly with agave or honey. Serve and enjoy!
