The other day my husband broke his tooth at work on some crunchy sourdough pretzel nuggets. He came home that day with the half eaten bag and placed it on the counter. We both stared at it. That little jerk of a bag is going to cost us some serious money in dental bills. None of us would eat the pretzels after knowing they have tooth breaking powers. BUT...There was no WAY I was going to let that jerk of a bag just sit there with nothing to do. So I put it to work to create this kickass chicken recipe.
Honey Mustard and Onion Pretzel Coated Chicken Breasts
AKA: Kickass Chicken
- 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 cups sourdough pretzel nuggets
- 1 cup french fried onions (the kind in the can)
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
- 1 Tbsp honey
Crush the pretzels and onions in a bag with a mallet using all that pent up anger you have inside...or use a food processor...whatever. (I took great pride in smashing those suckers after what they did to my husband's mouth.) In a separate bowl, mix together the mayo, mustard, and (even though those pretzels didn't deserve anything sweet) the honey.
Cut each piece of chicken in half horizontally so you end up with 6 thinner pieces. Dip them in the honey mustard mixture so all sides are coated and lay the chicken in a glass or stone casserole dish. Top each piece of chicken with the smashed up remains of what were once some smug pretzel bits and their oniony minions and bake at 375° for about 25 min or until the chicken is no longer pink.
Then eat the delicious chicken without fear of breaking any teeth and know that you just kicked some smug pretzel ASS!
