This is one of those oh-so-easy dishes that  I could easily make for dinner.  I love pretzels and they’re so versatile and they can be used in many dishes, snacks, desserts with a little imagination.   If you are the main food shopper in your household, browse at the snack aisle.  A big bag of pretzel twists for example are the cheapest of all snacks you will find.  As for brands…pick one…they are plenty.   This is one great recipe I found browsing the net.

PRETZEL-CRUSTED CHICKEN NUGGETS

Ingredients

2 cups salted pretzel twists (about 3 oz.)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan /2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 large eggs
1 pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into 2-inch pieces

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F and coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray. Place pretzels and Parmesan in a food processor and process until coarsely ground and well mixed, 20 to 30 seconds. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Combine flour and pepper in a separate bowl. Beat eggs with 1 tsp. water in a third bowl.

3. Roll a chicken piece in flour mixture until thoroughly coated. Dip in eggs, allowing excess to drip off. Transfer to pretzel mixture and turn until thoroughly coated. Place chicken on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining pieces of chicken. Bake until lightly browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

First of all, I love to cook...not every night, but weekends are the best time to cook. I am a animal lover, especially wildlife. My next vacation would be to South Africa. To get personal and close up to wildlife would be fascinating. I like to read suspense, thriller novels. Regarding television....I like some reality shows, crime shows, comedies. I like to look at a recipe from a cookbook and do my version of it.. usually the healthier choice. I am all about substitutions, if a recipe calls for a ingredient there are dozens of ingredients you can substitute for the called-for ingredient. I like summer because I love cooking outdoors, swimming. It's just the fresh air that makes everyone want to get outside and do something. I love the air especially after the rain.... that nothing compares to that.
