Pretzels Make A Great Crust!
Breaded chicken is always a great way to fancy up chicken breasts, but instead of the usual breadcrumbs, why not spice things up with crushed pretzels?
Pretzels are one of my family's favorite snack foods because they're small, salty and the perfect answer to those mid-afternoon hunger pangs. But plain pretzels have taken a back seat for me recently. I've started looking for more interesting alternatives, like those filled with peanut butter and the ones that are flavored. Then Taste of Home suggested crushing them and using them as a crust for meats which I thought was a novel idea, especially since I usually use breadcrumbs. But with crushed pretzels, I didn't need to add any extra salt or spices to the crust since the pretzels already had their own salty exterior. Adding some maple syrup to the mixture gave the chicken a nice sweet and salty flavor that made my mouth water.
