Pretzel Crusted Chicken Tenders/ New Feature


Do you have a picky child, or in my case young adult.  Do they say they will not eat chicken? I think I may have the recipe to help change their mind! It did mine anyways.

My son is 16 and will not eat chicken. I made this the other night and he absolutely loved it and I was floored.

Pretzel Crusted Chicken Tenders



This is another recipe that does not have exact ingredients!

  • Chicken tenders
  • Dijon Mustard (honestly any type of mustard will do) 2 or 3 Tablespoons
  • Pretzels about 3 cups
  • Salt and Pepper

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In bowl of a food processor or plastic bag with rolling pin  crush pretzels (you do not want it into total crumbs, just into smaller pieces). Salt and Pepper both sides of your chicken tenders.

In one bowl add Mustard

In another baking dish add pretzels

Using a pastry brush, brush a light coat of mustard on both sides of chicken. Using your tongs, roll each tender into the pretzels and place on either a foil lined baking sheet or a baking sheet with a cooling rack ( this is recommended so that your chicken does not get soggy on one side!) Cook 15-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through!

  2. Once all the tenders are breaded, place the baking sheet in the oven. Bake for 35 minutes. Make sure the internal temperature of the tenders is 140 degrees. Let the tenders cool for about three minutes before serving. Note: Be sure to reheat in the oven to keep the crispiness. Do not reheat more than once or tenders will dry out.


  3. I think, it’s a helpful topic. I like this topic. I want know some helpful things from this side. It fresh my mind and experience. So lots of thanks for sharing this information with me.
