Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Tenders with Honey Mustard

As January comes to an end, I’m pretty sure that all we are thinking about around here is football and the Superbowl. I’ve been on a kind of football food craze here lately, and today was no different. I tried to keep it light and fresh today when I was playing around with some recipes, and these baked pretzel-crusted chicken tenders made it to the top of the list. They were super delicious and super fun. They were super fun because anything you get to eat with your fingers is fun in my book! These little guys are seriously the perfect finger food. They are incredibly easy to make and super quick to whip up. The honey mustard just takes it to a whole new level, and who doesn’t love a good homemade honey mustard?! It’s literally my favorite condiment. These chicken tenders are baked, not fried, and the perfect alternative to a traditional chicken tender. You will love them, and I can guarantee your kiddos will love them even more!








Beer Love:

Beer: Big Choice Brewing’s Double IPA: Hemlock
Brewed By: Big Choice Brewing
Style: Double IPA
ABV: 9.5%
IBU: 104
Description: Big Choice Brewing is local to those of us living in the Denver Metro area, and we love them. Their Double IPA, Hemlock, is extremely tasty. It’s just hoppy enough, but not out of control. It has hints of chocolate and malt, that brings an abundance of flavor to every sip. I love a good IPA with light and savory recipes. It’s just sweet enough to balance out the flavors of this chicken, and we highly recommend it!
