Jessica Cordial, one of PNTs Care Coordinators, let us know that its National Poultry Day! Here is a great recipe she has shared: Honey Mustard Pretzel-Coated Chicken Fingers
- 10 oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast, cut into 8 strips
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp. honey mustard
- 1/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
- 20 standard-sized (not mini) hard salted thin pretzel twists
- 1 tbsp. plus 1 tsp. granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with nonstick spray and set aside.
Season chicken strips with salt and pepper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine honey mustard with egg substitute and whisk well. Submerge chicken in mustard-egg mixture, and set aside to marinate for at least 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, place pretzels in a sealable plastic bag, seal, and finely crush through the bag with a meat mallet or other heavy utensil. Add sugar, reseal, and shake to mix. Spread the mixture out on a large plate or in a large dish. Set aside.
Using tongs, transfer chicken strips to the pretzel-sugar mixture and thoroughly coat. Then transfer them to the baking sheet. (Discard excess mustard-egg mixture.) Mist the tops of the strips with nonstick spray. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through baking, until the chicken is cooked through.Eat and enjoy!
