Ingredients
  

Pretzel crusted chicken

  • ¼ cup greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup dijon mustard
  • 2 pounds chicken breasts, cut into 1-2 inch bite size pieces
  • 1 ½ cups crushed pretzels
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon paprika powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper
  • Olive oil cooking spray

Chipotle honey mustard

  • ¼ cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • ¼ cup greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons chipotle chili pepper powder (to taste)
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika powder

Instructions
 

Pretzel crusted chicken

  • In a large bowl, whisk together dijon mustard, greek yogurt and mayonnaise. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the crushed pretzels, flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Working with a few pieces of chicken at a time, remove chicken from the honey mustard and roll into the crushed pretzels, pressing to adhere. Place on the prepared baking sheet. Generously spray the pretzel crusted chicken with olive oil cooking spray so the pretzel breading gets crispy during baking. Bake for 20-25 minutes until chicken is cooked through.

Chipotle honey mustard

  • While the chicken bakes, in a small bowl, whisk together all chipotle honey mustard ingredients until combined.
  • Serve the chicken with the chipotle honey mustard dipping sauce!
