Recipe: Pretzel crusted chicken nuggets with honey mustard is our new jam
On Tuesdays, we’re all just trying to turn hard work into chicken nuggets and that’s when we stumbled upon a mouthwatering recipe of Pretzel crusted chicken nuggets. Do boys even understand how easy it is to make girls happy?
You can surprise them with chicken nuggets and they might cry out of happiness. Hence, here’s a recipe to fall back in love this Tuesday evening with Pretzel crusted chicken nuggets.
1 lb chicken tenders
1/2 c almond flour
1/2 c coconut flour
1 5 oz bag pretzels (crushed) — I used gluten-free
1 tbsp honey mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp black pepper
Cut chicken tenders into nugget-sized pieces. Assemble 3 separate bowls, for dipping stations. In first bowl, combine almond flour, coconut flour, garlic powder and black pepper. In second bowl, whisk 2 eggs with honey mustard. In third bowl, add crushed pretzels.
Dip chicken nuggets in flour mixture, egg mixture, and pretzel coating (in that order). Repeat until all chicken nuggets have been thoroughly breaded. Place chicken nuggets in air fryer at 400 degrees for 10 minutes — can add additional time depending on how crispy you’d like them!
Remove from air fryer, let cool and serve with honey mustard dipping sauce. Enjoy!
