      Despite high hopes for the interesting combination of ingredients, this recipe fell flat. I have made other, more simple recipes of pretzel crusted chicken that were much better received. The breading's flavor was bland, the sauce was the only bright spot. I used tenderloins instead of breasts, cutting the cooking time almost in half (you can also cut breasts in half horizontally to greatly reduce total cooking time)<br/><br/>KateL's suggestion for the sauce ratios was very helpful, but my guests thought it was a bit sweet so I modified it slightly to change the balance (2 Tbsp preserves, 1-1/2 tsp honey, 2 Tbsp mustard)

      I personally found this recipe to be bland in taste. Except for the sauce which was yummy. I eyeballed the sauce recipe and it had just the right amount of sweetness. The breasts however were a big disappointment. Sorry, but if eaten without the sauce they just lacked any real savory flavor. I guess if you're on a strict diet and need to cut calories this is a great recipe for that. I won't make this again nor try to tweak it. Only the sauce.

      The sauce is the bomb! I mixed the ingredients to my taste, and just loved it. The breading on the chicken.....just loved that hint of bacon. My breasts were huge, and could only eat half of one. Look forward to having the other half tomorrow at lunch as a sandwich with the sauce on the bun. Thanks so much for sharing your yummy recipe!
