Pretzel Chicken

I'm always trying to find new ways to use chicken cutlets and also make it interesting for my kids.  My oldest daughter LOVES this version of breaded chicken cutlets using crush pretzels.


6 chicken cutlets
3 cups of crushed pretzel pieces
2 eggs, beaten
salt and pepper to taste
2 tabelspoons vegetable oil


Beat eggs in a shallow bowl and set aside.  Crush preztels in a large ziploc bag using a rolling pin or some other heavy kitchen object (be creative),  Dredge chicken cutlets in beaten egg and then coat in crushed pretzel pieces until cutlet is covered with preztels on both sides.  Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet, when hot add the preztel coated cutlets and cook on med/hi heat until brown on both sides.  Transfer cutlets to a greased baking pan and finish cooking in the oven for an additional 7-10 minutes. 


  1. I've made pecan chicken before but not pretzel chicken! These sounds amazing and I can imagine how delicious it could be with that crunchy and salty crust! Can't wait to try this.

  2. I could see how the salt from the pretzels would be awesome here. Great recipe idea!

  3. How cool! I bet they would be really tasty dipped in some sort of dijon or sweet hot mustard sauce. Yum!
