Life has been incredibly busy lately. M, my fiancé (loooove saying that!), and I have been checking out wedding venues in San Diego, searching for a new house and entertaining visitors. Add full time jobs on top of that and we’ve barely had any time to sleep! Now that things are finally starting to calm down, I can focus more on posting some of the fun recipes I’ve created recently. Even when things get crazy I still find time to cook. Although I love creating extravagant menus, most of the meals I make are quite simple and can be whipped up easily for quick lunch or weeknight meal.
These pretzel coated chicken fingers are perfect for a speedy and effortless meal that your whole family will love. The tender white meat chicken coated in crunchy salty pretzels and served with a sweet and tangy honey mustard sauce is sure to make big and little mouths happy. Once you try these you will never submit to prepackaged frozen chicken fingers again. Pair them with some crisp steamed great beans and watch everyone dip until their plates are cleared!
- 1 ¼ lbs chicken breast
- 65 everything pretzel thins
- 1 egg
- 3 Tbsp honey Dijon mustard
- 1 ½ Tbsp fat free sour cream
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Coat a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Place the pretzel thins in a re-sealable plastic storage bag and crush with a rolling pin or mallet. Pour them into a shallow dish (pie pans work great).
Cut the chicken into 12 “fingers” (or purchase them already cut into tenders!) Beat the egg in another shallow dish or bowl. Dip each chicken finger in the egg and coat with the pretzel crumbs and arrange on the baking sheet 1-2 inches apart.
Bake in preheated oven for approximately 12 minutes. Carefully flip each finger over and bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until juices run clear when knife is inserted. Remove from oven and transfer to a platter.
In a small bowl, stir together the honey Dijon mustard and sour cream. Serve alongside the chicken fingers , sit back and accept the gratitude from your loving family… Ok, well at least be happy that you served them a delicious nutritious meal with minimal effort!
