Crispy Pretzel Chicken Sticks Recipe

With the school year picking up, we are becoming overwhelmed with tests, homework and projects not to mention the many after-school activities!  In order to have a successful dinner, we need something quick, easy and fun.  After stumbling upon this recipe from A Spicy Perspective, I decided to give it a whirl.

What You Need:

  • 8 chicken tenderloins
  • 1/3 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. Tony Chachere Seasoning (we like our chicken spicy!)
  • 1 cup crushed Goldfish cheese crackers
  • 1 cup crushed pretzel sticks
  • 8 bamboo/wooden skewers

How to make it:

  • Preheat the oven to 450 F and soak 8 skewers in water while waiting.
  • Cover a baking sheet with aluminum foil and cover with cooking spray.
  • Mix 1/3 cup yogurt with garlic powder and Tony Chachere’s Seasoning in a small bowl.
  • Crush the Goldfish and pretzel sticks and combine in a shallow dish.

  • Insert the skewer through the center of each chicken tender, leaving enough stick at the end to use as a handle.
  • Brush a thin layer of the yogurt mixture on both sides of the chicken and then roll into the cracker/pretzel mixture making sure all parts of the chicken are covered.

  • Serve with honey mustard dipping sauce (we like French’s).

The recipe was a huge hit and we plan on making it part of our regular routine.  Let me know how yours turns out!
