oktoberfest pretzel mustard chicken
1/4 Pound pretzel sticks
3 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 Tablespoon apple cider or brown ale
1 Tablespoon honey
1 1/2 Teaspoon fresh thyme, plus more for garnish
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Pulse the pretzel sticks in a food processor or crush by hand in a resealable bag until they’ve turned into a powder the texture of panko breadcrumbs.
Transfer the crumbs to a wide, shallow bowl.
In separate shallow bowl, whisk mustard, beer or cider, honey and thyme together.
Spray a wire rack with cooking spray and place atop a sheet tray. Dip each chicken breast in the mustard mixture, then dredge in the pretzel crumbs to coat evenly and place on the wire rack. Spray the top of each chicken breast lightly with cooking spray.
When ready to cook, set Z Grill temperature to 375°F and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes
Place the pan on the Z Grill and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, until the chicken breasts are fully cooked and register 165°F on an instant-read thermometer.
Let chicken rest for 5 minutes. Garnish with fresh thyme if desired. Enjoy!
