Making your own breaded chicken fingers from scratch is super convenient and fast using the air fryer, but you can of course cook these in the oven instead. Instead of using eggs as a binder, marinating the chicken first in honey mustard dressing is super smart and yummy.
The result is chicken that has lots of crisp seasoning on the outside and is soft and tender on the inside. The combo of honey mustard chicken marinade and Dot’s honey mustard pretzels on the chicken gives it such an extra boost of sweet and savory flavor.

More tips for making honey mustard chicken strips:
- Need a gluten-free version of this idea? Use some gluten-free honey mustard pretzels instead!
- Want oven directions instead? Try baking these in the oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Chicken tenders are cooked when the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. I use an instant-read thermometer to check.
