Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time 20

Ingredients

1 cup panko crumbs (opt)
1/2 cup parmesan (opt, but delicious)
1 cup pretzel crumbs
½ cup neutral tasting olive oil
½ cup Dijon mustard
⅓ cup honey (Iike clover or orange blossom)
¼ cup water
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
coarse salt and fresh ground black pepper
1 + ½ pounds boneless chicken breasts
½ cup flour, plus more if needed
1 egg, beaten (opt)


Preheat the oven to 400° F. Lightly grease with oil a large, non-stick baking sheet or roasting pan. If you don't have a non-stick pan line a regular pan with parchment and lightly grease with oil.


In a large skillet over medium heat toast the panko crumbs until lightly golden, stirring constantly. Remove from the pan and allow to cool. (If using)


In a food processor pulse the pretzels until coarsely ground (small crumbs with some small pretzel pieces) then add them to a medium bowl and mix with the panko crumbs and/or parmesan. Wipe the crumbs out of the food processor.


Add the oil, mustard, honey, water and vinegar to the food processor and pulse until smooth.


Season with salt and pepper. Taste and adjust the flavor to suit your own tastes by adding more mustard or honey.


Pound the chicken breasts out to an even thickness using a mallet. Season well with salt and pepper.



Set up a dredging station:



Pour half of the dressing into a large shallow bowl or dish, put the flour on a large plate and add half the pretzel mixture to a large, shallow bowl or dish (add the remaining half pretzel crumbs to the dish as needed).


Working one at a time and using tongs dredge the chicken in the flour then into the dressing or egg allowing excess to drip off then into the pretzel crumbs, patting them on if needed. Place on greased baking sheet.


Bake 16 - 25 minutes depending on their thickness/size or until cooked through (internal temperature 165 - 174 degrees F.). Can flip once if desired.


Let the chicken sit 5 minutes before serving with the remaining honey mustard dressing.

Notes

I usually skip the bread crumbs on this and just do the flour, then the egg, then pretzel/parmesan mixture. Additionally, I usually just mix honey and mustard for a sauce, but this one is delicious, too.
