Reviews for Pretzel-Crusted Chicken with Mixed Greens
Sort By :
The chicken was excellent, and we loved the mayo/Dijon sauce for the chicken, but I did not care for the salad dressing and my husband thought it was okay. Not that it isn't a good dressing recipe, it just isn't our taste so much. We will definitely make the chicken again, though.
Really good chicken. Prefer the pretzels over bread crumbs any day. My 5 year old who needs to be bribed to finish any kind of meat ate a whole piece and actually requests this dish. Insted of Mayo, use Greek Yougurt.
Very good recipe, flavors all taste well together
This was pretty yummy! I was leary of the mayo sauce but it went well with the chicken. I used lite mayo since that's all we had, and it was fine.
The chicken smelled fantastic, but I found that frying it in the oil took away the flavor of the pretzels.
