Your favorite crunchy pretzels just got together with chicken for a new take on ‘fried chicken’! Honey Mustard Pretzel Crusted Chicken Bites with Strawberry Dijon Dipping Sauce are sweet, savory and spicy all in one bite!
Talk about one glorious day! Today is day I get my kitchen back. Which also means my house.
You see, where there is a renovation being done, there is strange, powerful smells. Unfortuatnely, I had to hightail it out of there. I like to think myself of one tough cookie, but those got the best of me. The room started to get smaller, I started feeling light headed, my hearing started to go out and I could barely walk. And no, it was not a cocktail recipe testing day. But it sure felt like it!
One I get the cabinet doors back on, and all my decorations semi in place, I will share a pic with you all! But you should follow along on Instagram where I may be likely to share a pic sooner than later. So make sure you are waiting on the edge of your seats. Kidding! Your life is way more exciting than that…
But you know what you do need to sit on the edge of your seat for? Honey mustard pretzel crusted chicken bites. I don’t think they had made it to the table before over half of the batch had disappeared. I wish I could blame Dustin for stealing them all, but this time that is not the case. We were both guilty. Slightly sweet from the homemade honey mustard sauce that the sauce takes a bath in before diving into crushed pretzels. Then they take a short ride through the oven to get all crunchy and delicious.
And what are chicken nuggets without a dipping sauce? Kinda like Chick Fil A. I get nearly all their sauces, what is it? Like 5 or 6? Yup. I get em all. I don’t even have enough chicken nuggets to dedicate one to each sauce. Life choices are hard. I tell ya.
So when I was experimenting with flavors, I eyed fresh strawberries in the fridge. And you know how I love strawberries in savory dishes. Like in this avocado toast and when paired with cucumbers, they are swoon worthy. So when I thought to puree them with a bit of dijon for a more savory sauce, it was goooood. I mean like I might as well sat with a spoon and the blender to finish it all off.
Pathetic? Slightly. Tasty? For sure.
