Dipping pretzels into honey mustard is a snacking tradition as old as time… or at least as old as pretzels. Easy Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken takes that concept and turns it into a crust for a chicken dish unlike any other. Hence the crust draped over the savory, juicy chicken is crunchy and salty, with that distinct pretzel flavor. What’s more, each piece of chicken is coated in honey mustard, so every bite is basically self-dipping! Easy Honey Mustard Pretzel Chicken comes together in less than half an hour, perfect for seamlessly turning your snack time into supper time!
