DD#1 (the chef)brought this recipe home from a co-worker. I thought what a unique way to coat anything! I hate fish but cant wait to try this on chicken tenders. Dont think it could get much easier than this!

I have been making this for years now, after first reading this recipe in 2007. This is a staple in our house, I make it at least once a month! Most times, I just use pretzels and mayo but every once in awhile I'll add some garlic powder or different flavors of Mrs. Dash. This recipe is so easy and versatile, you can use just about any herb or spice with it!
