Didn't get the pretzels crushed up enough so it didn't stay on the chicken. But it had a good flavor!

I accidentally added the cayenne pepper and garlic powder to the crushed pepper mixture. Still was very good!

Much better than I expected. The texture was good and it had a unique flavor. The pepper can be tasted a fair amount more than I expected.
