Honey Mustard & Pretzel Baked Chicken

Recipe inspiration can come from anywhere.  I recently went to an autumn carnival and couldn’t resist the smells of the freshly baked pretzels.  I love pretzels with mustard, and as I was eating, I realized this combination would translate perfectly into baked chicken recipe.  Here is my take on Honey Mustard & Pretzel Baked Chicken.

INGREDIENTS

  • 4 chicken breasts (boneless and skinless)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1 cup pretzels
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • salt + pepper
  • 1 green onion (diced)

DIRECTIONS

1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2.  In a bowl, combine egg, olive oil, salt, honey, and dijon mustard.  Whisk until combined.

3.  Place pretzels in a food processor.  Blend until finely crushed.  Combine pretzels with bread crumbs and place on a wide, shallow plate.

4.  Cut chicken breasts into strips.  Dip strips in the egg mixture then into pretzel-bread crumb mixture.  Transfer chicken strips to a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray.

5.  Bake for 20-25 minutes and flip halfway through.

6.  Remove from the oven and season with salt + pepper.  Top with chopped green onion.

TO NOTE:  You can create an easy dipping sauce by whisking together 2 tablespoons honey, 1/3 cup dijon mustard, and 2 tablespoon of miracle whip.
