Pretzel Crusted Chicken
PRETZEL CRUSTED CHICKEN
Cheesecake Factory Recipe
Servings: 30 skewers
9 ounces pretzels (sticks or twists)
2 ounces Panko breadcrumbs
30 chicken breasts, cut into pieces 1 inch wide x 4-5 inches long
30 bamboo skewers (6 inches)
2 ounces all purpose flour
6 ounces buttermilk
canola oil, as needed
1 cup honey mustard sauce
1 cup ranch dressing
Place the pretzels into a food processor or crush by hand into very, very small pieces. Place the crushed pretzels and panko breadcrumbs into mixing bowl. Gently mix the crushed pretzels and panko together until evenly combined.
Gently flatten the thicker ends of the chicken pieces. Skewer each chicken portion (lengthwise, 1 chicken portion per skewer). Dredge the chicken into the seasoned flour shaking off any excess. Dip the floured chicken skewer into the buttermilk coating it evenly all over. Finally dip the skewer into the pretzel/breadcrumb mixture until it is completely coated. Gently press the pretzel mixture into the chicken to help it hold. Place the breaded chicken skewers into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour before serving.
Heat the canola oil to 350 degrees in a deep fry pan or skillet. Carefully place the breaded chicken skewers into the hot oil (a few at a time) and cook until dark brown and crispy. Ladle the honey mustard sauce and ranch dressing into small sauce dishes. Place the sauces onto a large platter. Arrange the some of the chicken skewers onto the platter next to the sauces.
