Pretzel Crusted Chicken Strips {with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce}.

I’ve written before on the magnificent power of a chicken strip.  For that matter a chicken finger, nugget, or any form of tender juicy crusted chicken bites.  They are universally loved by carnivores, especially at gatherings that often involve televised sports aka Game Day!

We’ve used pecans to coat our Pecan-Crusted Trout, Sage-Pecan Pesto Encrusted Turkey Tenderloin, and Pecan Salmon Caesar Salad.  All were delicious.  Our Cheez-It Crusted Buffalo Chicken Fingers delivered awe-mazing.  So when we chose pretzels to crust our chicken strips, we got all the great crunch and flavor, with less fat and calories.  And they’re baked, so no oil required.  Are you feeling a WIN like I am?!
