Reviews for Maple Pretzel Chicken
"Use flour, then egg, and pretzel to make it stick better"
"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."
"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."
