  • Step 1

    1. Preheat oven to 400.

  • Step 2

    2. Place the pretzels in a plastic ziploc bag and crush them with a heavy object; I used the bottom of a glass. I liked having some chunkier pieces of pretzel in the mix but if you want a totally uniform crust, you might want to use a blender or a food processor.

  • Step 3

    3. In a small bowl, whisk vinegar, mustard, oil, honey, salt, pepper and garlic powder until well-combined.

  • Step 4

    4. Spread the crushed pretzels out on a flat surface: a plate, some tinfoil, a paper towel. Your call.

  • Step 5

    5. Dip the chicken breasts into the mustard sauce and then coat on both sides with the crushed pretzels. You'll have a little bit of mustard sauce left over...save it!
