Cooking With Joy: Pretzel Chicken

pretzel chicken


This recipe seemed like a great way to jazz up the common schnitzel or chicken nugget, and who doesn’t love a good dipping sauce? To me and Hubs our favorite thing about going to a schnitzel bar is getting to taste all the sauces and slathering them on sandwiches. So I was looking forward to tasting this herbed curried mustard.

It was a no brainer for me to opt for the dressed down version here- I knew better than to give my kids skewers. I knew how that would end- SWORD FIGHT!!!!!!!

Since like most of you, I need to get dinner on the table pretty quickly, I look for convenience when I can. Evergreen had chicken cutlets that were already cut into nuggets for a very similar price to the regular cutlets that I couldn’t pass them up!

I prepped the sauce and set that aside for the flavors to come together. Then I crushed the pretzels and added the spices. I have mentioned before that I do not like standing at the stove after a long day at work, so I opted to bake the nuggets rather than fry them. This was to my detriment, these nuggets came out a little soggy, I really wish I would have been able to get them crispy- live and learn.

After letting them cool a bit I tried one sans the curried mustard, I found it needed salt and pepper. Then I tasted one dipped in the curried mustard- WOW that sauce packed a wonderful punch of flavor!
