This was very good! Loved the mix of the pretzels and maple.
wonderful. i am sorry i waited so long to make it. had a super great flavor not to overpowering.
@ howeavenue. There is definitely one and possibly 2 reasons why your fried chicken isn't crunchy like KFC. First and foremost is that I'm sure you don't own and use a pressure fryer such as they do. The other possible reason is that you fry the chicken immediately after coating. Try putting the coated chicken on a plate. cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for an hour before frying. BTW the idea of egg and honey mustard is a keeper. Tried it and it is excellent
Quick & easy and flavorful. I've made it twice now, and I prefer a more coarse pretzel coating vs. a finely chopped pretzel breading. I also dredged the chicken through both the egg bath and the pretzels twice, just to give it extra coating & flavor. The breasts came out juicy both times. I'll make it again for a quick meal.
Tastes kind of funky.
