2 tbsp olive oil (for frying the chicken)

4 chicken breasts

1 ½ cups salted pretzels (pulsed)

2 tbsp olive oil

1 tbsp honey

1 tbsp yellow mustard

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

1/2 tsp dried parsley

1/2 tsp chilli flakes or cayenne pepper

1/3 cup yellow mustard

1/4 cup honey

1 tsp chilli flakes or cayenne pepper (optional)

1/4 tsp garlic powder


Set your oven to 400 ℉.

Begin by preparing your chicken marinade. Slather the marinade on both sides of the chicken and let rest for a minimum of 30 minutes but preferably 1 hour.

Pulse your pretzels in a blender and set aside.

To an oven safe frying pan add your olive oil and set to medium/high heat.

Fry your chicken breasts on each side for 2-3 minutes, just until they get a nice brown color on each side.

Add your pan to the oven and bake for 5-7 minutes, or until the chicken reaches about 155°.**You want to take the chicken out to add the pretzels about 5 minutes before the chicken is done cooking.

When you chicken has about 5 minutes left, take it out quickly and add a thin layer of yellow mustard with a cooking brush. This will allow the pretzels to stick better.

Add your pretzels to the top of the chicken and get it back in the oven to finish cooking.

While it finishes off in the oven, prepare your honey mustard sauce.

Once your chicken reaches 165℉ take it out and drizzle it with that delicious honey mustard dressing.

Serve right away!
