    I got this from the March 2008 edition of Rachael Ray's magazine. It looks like something my family would enjoy.

      Wonderful, the crispiest, and very tasty too, chicken I have ever made! Would have been a little dry without the cheese sauce, which was the perfect accompaniment.

      This was pretty darn tasty! I ended up using 6 eggs and about a cup of olive oil. I had a heck of a time getting the batter to stay on the zucchini! :( I did like the flavour though and so did my family. Thanks Lainey for a lovely dinner! Made for Gimme 5. :)

      This recipe made it into book#234156! ~PAC Spring 2008~ FANTASTIC!!!!! What a delicious meal this recipe provided. The zucchini sticks are downright addictive! I halved the cheese sauce amount and it was more than enough. In fact, I will probably omit the cheese sauce from now on because the chicken and zucchini are outstanding on their own. The pretzel flavoring pairs wonderfully here. Don't skip the thyme, it adds just a hint of flavor that is perfect. I would also suggest grinding up the pretzels VERY WELL. If you don't, it won't adhere as well to the chicken & zucchini. I used a package of regular pretzel rods. Excellent recipe!!!!! :-)
