Zingy, tasty, chicken breasts! These are soooooooo darn good... :)
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 3⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise or 1⁄4 cup plain yogurt
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1⁄8 teaspoon cayenne pepper, to taste
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 minced green onion, both white and green part (green onion = scallion)
- fresh ground black pepper
- 1 cup crushed pretzel
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Pound/flatten chicken breasts until about 1/4 inch thick - and here's an easy way to pound a chicken breast: put it in a Ziplock bag first, then flatten with the mallet or whatever you're using. It keeps splatters at a minimum. (Flattening the breasts makes them even more tender!).
- Combine mustard, mayonnaise, honey, cayenne pepper, garlic, green onion, and salt and pepper to taste.
- Set half of mixture aside to be used as dipping sauce.
- Coat chicken completely in remaining mustard mixture, and then dredge in pretzel crumbs.
- Place coated chicken on baking sheet and bake for about 30 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.

Made this tonight for dinner.. had some pretzel chips and thought this sounded very delish... the mustard sauce is delish and so reserve some for dipping.<br/><br/>Thanks for posting
This chicken was excellent! The honey mustard flavor was not overpowering in the chicken, just left a nice hint of flavor. My 2 children (ages 3 & 1.5 years) loved it and my oldest even asked for seconds which NEVER happens since she dislikes most meats! That along means this is a keeper for me. I cut the chicken into strips and baked them on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet (it can get messy with the crumbs) to ensure even browning on both sides of the chicken. Excellent and will make over and over!
This recie was fantastic. I had heard about pretzel crusted chicken advertised for a resteraunt chain and decided to look it up on Recipezaar. I did leave out the cayenne pepper and used honey mustard instead of the mayo-Dijon-honey mixture. My family LOVED it
