Pretzel Crusted Chicken

Homemade Ranch Dressing

  • 1/3 cup coconut milk
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 cup low-fat mayonnaise
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley chopped
  • 3 tbsp green onions chopped

let's do it

Pretzel Crusted Chicken

  • Place the Dot's Pretzels in a gallon size bag and seal with as much air as possible pressed out. Using a rolling pin , crush the pretzels until they are about a quarter of the size. (The smaller they are, the less likely they are to burn in the frying pan.)
  • Place the chicken breast on a cutting board and cover with plastic wrap. Pound the breast with the flat side of a meat tenderizer until it is about 1/2" thick. This will help the chicken cook faster and more evenly.
  • Slice the thinned chicken breast into tender-sized pieces. Coat with Dot's Pretzel rub if using. This will just enhance the flavor of the pretzel crust.
  • Fill 3 bowls - one with flour, one with egg, and one with pretzel crumbles. Season the egg and flour with salt and pepper to taste.

  • Move the chicken breasts from the flour to the egg to the pretzels.
  • Add avocado oil to a fry pan and begin to heat. The oil will be ready when bubbles start to form around the end of a wooden spoon. Get a plate ready, lined with paper towels to drain.
  • Fry chicken for about 4 minutes per side, until the internal temperature reaches 165°F. Cover the pan with a splatter screen while chicken cooks to prevent oil from spitting up. Place on paper towel lined plate to rest for about 2 minutes.

Ranch Dressing

  • While the chicken is frying, mix together the ingredients for the ranch dressing in a small bowl.
  • Store any leftover dressing in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
