We eat a lot of chicken in our house, so I find I have to get pretty creative in the kitchen so that we don’t get bored with chicken…although really, who get ever get bored with chicken?! There is really so much you can do with chicken. You can bake it, roast it, grill it, saute it, or dip in in crunchy pretzels so that it becomes extra crispy and super tasty…
Yes, that’s right, pretzels aren’t only meant to be enjoyed from a big bowl on game day! They are also great crushed and baked on chicken. Seriously good.
Not only is this recipe family friendly, it’s also figure friendly. Pretzels themselves are virtually fat-free. Plus, these tenders are dipped in egg whites and then baked instead of fried.
Like I mentioned earlier, these tenders were a hit with the whole family. You could even make these into pretzel crusted nuggets for the kids! I also roasted some green beans on the side for a complete meal.
I served these Pretzel Crusted Tenders with a healthy honey-mustard dipping sauce, which the kids and I absolutely loved. If you’re anything like my husband, then you’ll prefer your Tenders with ketchup!
Either way you serve these, be prepared to enjoy!
