Fried Pretzel Chicken for Memorial Day

By Angie McGowan |

Fried Pretzel Chicken

When I told my husband yesterday that I was making pretzel chicken for dinner, he was floored. He said, “You mean your combining two of my favorite things, crispy fried chicken and crunchy pretzels?” I said yes, and I’m even pairing it with a sweet and spicy honey Dijon mustard sauce. Even though my husband had never heard of the idea of pretzel chicken, I had quite a while ago. I think it’s one of those 70′s recipes. If anyone remembers where it originated, I’d love to know. I have been meaning to make it for a long time, but we never seem to have any pretzels around. As fast as I buy them, my husband and son gobble them up.

After getting the pretzel bag away from my son, I ground up about 2 cups of the pretzels to make a breading for the chicken and then fried it until it was deep golden brown and very crunchy. This would make the perfect make ahead fried chicken recipe to take to a picnic or get-together on Memorial day.  And what’s a picnic without fried chicken? If you choose to chill it, this recipe is great too because it will stay crunchier than a traditional fried chicken because of the pretzel pieces. You can find my recipe for pretzel chicken here at my blog, Eclectic Recipes.

    I just tried baked pretzel chicken not too long ago, and it never occurred to me that the same thing could be done by frying the chicken too! Definitely going to be trying this one out soon =)
