Category: Healthy Recipes, Chicken, Main Dish

 Ingredients List

  • 1½ pounds chicken tenders
  • 1½ C pretzel crumbs*
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 2 tsp water
  • ½ tsp dry ground mustard
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp granulated garlic powder
  • fine sea salt
  • ground black pepper
  • vegetable oil for frying
  • =======================================================
  • Spicy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
  • â…“ C honey
  • ¼ C spicey brown mustard


1. Pour oil into your frying pan until it is about ¼-1/2 inch deep. Heat oil to 350 degrees.

2. Season chicken by evenly spriknkling with salt, pepper, dried mustard, onion powder and garlic powder.

3. Combine egg and water in a bowl large enough for dipping the chicken. Add pretzel crumbs to a separate shallow dish large enough to dredge the chicken in.

4. Dip and coat the chicken in the egg. Shake of excess egg and coat with pretzel crumbs. Press the pretzel crumbs onto the chicken to help it stick and to form a nice crust on the chicken. Repeat for each piece.

5. Fry the chicken in batches as necessary until it becomes a deep golden brown and reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. Chicken tenders cook fairly quickly. Remove chicken from the pan when done and rest on a paper towel or cooling rack while the rest of the chicken cooks.

6. Serve hot with the spicy honey mustard dipping sauce.

Spicy Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce:
Combine honey and mustard, mix well. Serve at room temperature or chilled.
