  • 4 tbsp. mustard
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp. honey

  1. Place pretzels in a zip-top bag and crush into small pieces (use a rolling pin or meat tenderizer). Tip mixture out into a shallow bowl or plate.
  2. Whisk the egg, honey, mustard, mayonnaise, and pepper together in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. Dip the chicken into the egg mixture then into pretzel crumbs.
  4. Fill a pot with oil, a few inches deep. Heat the oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 375°F. Gently place 4-5 pieces of chicken into the oil and cook until golden and crisp. Remove chicken and let it rest. Continue until all chicken has been cooked.
