Pretzel-Crusted Chicken

Added on by Monica Cheng.

As promised, a chicken recipe for y'all! Just a couple months ago, I'd never heard of such thing as mustard-pretzel breaded chicken, but now that I know how incredibly easy it is to make and how delicious it is, you can bet I'll be making this again. It's a no-fuss recipe any college student could use in his/her cooking repertoire. (Also a great dish for family meals!)

In fact, there's no cooking involved. All you gotta do is get some chicken, sprinkle with some salt & pepper, joyfully smash some pretzels in a bag, dip the chicken strips, coat with pretzel, and pop in the oven for 20 - 25 minutes. And voila!

Many thanks to Carl for sharing this yummy family recipe! I had a blast photographing this for Spoon. Check out his recipe on NU Spoon.


P.S. Any kind of pretzel will do (the easier to crush, the better). We used rods because that was the only kind of pretzel we were able to get our hands on at the time.

Mmmm pretzels (:
