Baked Nutty Pretzel Chicken
Adapted from Rachael Ray
Miz Helen's Kitchen
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast cut into strips 1/2 inch thick
or chicken tenders
1 medium size bag pretzel with salt
3/4 cup honey roasted nuts of any kind chopped
3 sprigs of fresh thyme or 2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 teaspoon parsley
11/2 teaspoon poultry season
dash Cayenne Pepper
Salt and Pepper
2 eggs beaten 
6 tablespoons water
Wash and dry chicken. Salt and pepper the chicken on all sides and set aside.
Place pretzels and nuts in a food processor or blender and grind until it is a fine powder. Pour the mix onto a plate and add the thyme, parsley, poultry season and Cayenne and mix well.
In a medium bowl mix the egg and the water
Dip the chicken in the pretzel mix then into the egg and back into the pretzel mix.
Place on a oil sprayed cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes until the juice runs clear
Let sit for about 5 minutes before serving 
Serve with a dipping sauce of Honey Mustard, BBQ Sauce or Ranch Dressing
 Tip: These can be kept warm in the oven until serving and they freeze really well. Will make a great chicken nugget for kids.

I sure am glad that you came out to visit us today. I always look forward to your visit. Be sure and come back for Full Plate Thursday for some great food.

Peace and Joy

  15. Hey Miz Helen my love! Oh I know its been a while since I stopped by and visited your lovely kitchen and had a delicious slice of coffee cake but my excuse is I have been crazy busy with college visits and the like. Finally back to normal and college selected thank goodness closer to home also thank goodness! So, this nutty pretzel chicken looks so fun and kind of silly! I love the flavor of pretzels and I am sure it tastes great! Very unique! Hope all is good with you and your garden is shaping up! We are still cold here and today is dreary! I know spring is coming soon though and I cant wait to get my seeds in the ground! Thanks for sharing with us on the hearth and soul hop! Big hugs! alex
