3. Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Breasts with Mustard-Dill Dipping Sauce

I've never tried this before, but the crunchiness aspect really appeals to me.

I might be able to squeeze a salad out of what I still have (a little lettuce, celery, radishes) and maybe a canned veggie.

Off to the *big* city tomorrow, where we will be for several weeks, enabling me to get whatever I want every day!

4. I'll bet that the pretzel crust turns out really good. Will you bake

or fry it?

Have fun in the city .

12. It came out really great.

Dredged in flour, then egg with some dijon in it, then the crushed pretzels. I had cut the chicken in to *tender* size strips, so they cooked really fast in about 1/2 oil. They were super crispy, not greasy at oil and the breading adhered to the chicken perfectly. I don't think I will ever fix chicken tenders any other way again.

14. Here is a link to the recipe I used for guidance.

http://www.finecooking.com/recipes/crusted-chicken-breasts-mustard-dill-dipping-sauce.aspx

As I mentioned, I cut the chicken into *tenders*. Also, I don't have a food processor, so I just crushed the pretzels in a plastic bag. This left them chunkier, but that was a plus for me.

BTW, this site has a great weekly dinner menu section, as does epicurious. I use them both and your nieces might enjoy them. The recipes are varied and generally really good. They help choose sides, desserts.
