As a child, I always looked forward to the nights when my mom cooked foods I didn’t like. That’s right, didn’t like. Why? It meant my dinner was basically a free-for-all. I could eat whatever I wanted – cereal, peanut butter and jelly, pizza – while my folks dined on white fish (which I love now) or stinky sautéed liver (sorry, mom). The fridge was my oyster. But, usually, my meal of choice was chicken nuggets. A kid favorite, for sure!

Instead of shaken from a frozen box, my favorite chicken nuggets these days are panko-crusted and baked ’til crispy. Served with a spicy ketchup or homemade honey mustard, they’re heaven on Earth. But, now I think I’ve found the second best secret to scrumptious chicken bites… pretzels!

I love that these crunchy, pretzel-coated chicken bites are so kid and adult-friendly! They’re super easy and fun to make, too. Just coat your chicken in flour, then in a honey mustard-egg mixture. Roll ’em up in your crushed pretzels, and onto your baking sheet they go. Just 15 minutes in your oven, and you have a delicious weeknight meal that everyone will love.

These bites are even better served with honey mustard… and I like mine spiced up with a little hot sauce! For a fun party appetizer, stick the bites with toothpicks and serve with a small bowl of honey mustard (or a variety of sauces) for dipping.

You’re just gonna love these!
