Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken Tenders
(Adapted from Cooking with Cakes)
1.5 lbs boneless, skinless Chicken Tenders (I just cut chicken breasts into smaller pieces)
1 and 1/2 cups Honey Mustard Dressing
1 and 1/3 cups Pretzels (I recommend the Snyder’s honey mustard flavor)
1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
non-stick cooking spray
Instructions: Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Transfer to large bowl or gallon Ziploc bag along with honey mustard dressing and let marinate in the fridge for about an hour. Place chicken on an oven safe wire rack over a baking sheet and spray it with the nonstick spray.
Using a food processor or high powered blender, chop pretzels into crumbs and pour them into a bowl. Run the tenders through the crumbs making sure the crumbs cover all sides.
Place tenders on the rack (I also spray a little of the non stick spay over the top to give it a little crunch). Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through.
These chicken tenders were an absolute hit in my house!
Serve with some roasted veggies (I love these Roasted Brussels Sprouts!) or a salad (like this Zesty Cilantro Lime Quinoa Salad) and you’ve got a super easy meal.
My son said, “Ok mom, for real these are so good.” I hope you give them a try!
