Ingredients

  • 24 chicken tenderloins, or 6 chicken breasts cut up into 4 equal strips
  • 1 1/2 Cup flour
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 2 Cups crushed honey mustard pretzels
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

Season the chicken tenders with salt and pepper to taste. Place the flour, eggs, and pretzels in 3 separate bowls or shall dishes. First dredge the tenders in the flour, then the eggs, and then the pretzels.

Heat about 2 inches of the oil in a large skillet to 350 degrees. Fry the chicken tenderes until golden brown and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. 

Honey Shopping Tip

As an alternative to sugary, salty, processed foods, try shopping for fruits and vegetables that are in season.

Honey Cooking Tip

For a healthier alternative, substitute honey or molasses for sugar in baking recipes, and use a 3:1 blend of canola oil to olive oil instead of butter when cooking over the flame.
