Pretzel Crusted Fried Chicken

Posted: Updated:

Serves 4


1 chicken

1/2 pound sourdough pretzels

2 cups buttermilk

2 tablespoons paprika

2 egg whites

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method of Preparation:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degree F. Cut chicken into pieces: 2 drumsticks, 2 thighs, 2 wings, and 2 breasts. Remove skin and trim any fat. Set chicken aside.

2. Place pretzels in a heavy-duty, resealable plastic bag and crush into coarse crumbs. Divide pretzel crumbs between 2 shallow dishes.

3. In a bowl, whisk together buttermilk, paprika, egg whites, mustard, salt, and pepper. Working with 1 piece at a time, dredge chicken in pretzel crumbs from first dish, then dip into buttermilk mixture, shaking off excess. Coat thoroughly with crumbs from second dish.

4. Place on parchment-lined baking pan and bake until chicken crust is crispy and an instant- read thermometer inserted into meat registers 165 degree F, about 20 minutes. The chicken can also be fried, which will take about 15 minutes.
