Makes (5) 5oz chicken breasts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
For the crust:
2c seasoned flour (I used Thyme, S&P)
2 eggs and 1 c milk, whisked together
4 oz pretzels (chopped fine in food processor).
- Dredge both sides of each breast in flour
- Dip in eggwash
- Bread in pretzel crumbs
In oven-friendly large frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. When oil is hot, start sauteeing chicken breasts, after 3-4 minutes, turn chicken breasts over, and put pan in oven to finish, for about 8-12 minutes.
I served them as sandwiches, only because I just happened to find "Pretzel Bread" as I was shopping.
