Maple Pretzel Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo
This unexpected combo delivers delicious results. The finer the pretzel crumb, the better. Larger pieces won't coat as well. —Tara Szlag, Columbus, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 6, 2014

"This wasn't too bad! I too soaked the chicken in the egg and syrup, but I made the mistake of not reading the reviews before I went to the store, and I did not use real maple syrup. I bet that would make a difference. But the pretzel coating was crunchy and the chicken was juicy. I'll make this again!"

"Excellent combination! For a healthier version I baked ... 400 degrees - 25 minutes, then flip - cooked another 12 minutes."
