Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

Pretzel Crusted Honey Mustard Chicken

Yield 4 Servings


  • 2 large chicken breasts (halved width-wise to make 4 breasts)
  • 2 cups pretzels
  • 3/4 cup light mayonnaise
  • 3 Tbsp yellow mustard
  • 3/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400*F. Place a piece of parchment paper in a large rimmed baking sheet & then set a wire rack (like an oven-safe cookie rack) on top of the parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Make honey mustard by combining mayonnaise, mustard, garlic powder, cider vinegar, honey, salt & pepper in a bowl with a whisk. Pour one-third to one-half of the mixture onto a plate. Save the rest in the bowl in the refrigerator.
  3. Pulse pretzels in a food processor until coarsely ground, leaving little bits of pretzels visible. Pour onto a plate.
  4. Roll chicken breasts in the honey mustard & then dredge them in the pretzel bits. Place breaded chicken breasts onto the prepared wire racks. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is done (165*F). Allow chicken to rest a few minutes. Slice & then drizzle extra honey mustard over the top or serve on the side for dipping.
