Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Fingers with Honey Mustard Dip

Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Fingers
I don’t eat deep fried stuff anymore, or  limit them to a bite (which is usually of something my sister would be eating– one french fry, one shrimp, one Lays potato chip. I know I’m weird. Often times when I go out to eat with friends, the appetizer just inevitably ends up being deep fried and I’d be damned if I even request grilled shrimp over deep-fried shrimp because “nobody wants to eat grilled shrimps, Izza!”  In those heated moments, I question our friendship.

Pretzel Crusted Chicken Fingers
Though I have yet to convert my friends to grilled shrimps, I know for chicken, these pretzel crusted fingers will always be a winner.  My siblings scarfed these down in ten minutes. They’re a healthier alternative. Sure, I use pretzels but we can afford a few carbs because these are delicious and we can burn off later in the gym, okay? I won’t even start with the honey mustard dip because I want to let your taste buds enjoy that and also because this keyboard is ancient and hurting my fingers.Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Fingers

Oh man, I’ve made these three times now and I can’t get enough of them. Pretzel crust is an awesome idea — these turn out good and salty and crunchy, satisfying my fast food chicken tender cravings. The honey mustard dip is very tasty, too; they’ve also gone well with a copycat Raising Cane’s sauce.
