Crunchy Pretzel Chicken with an Apricot Glaze

March 26, 2010

By Heather from Heather Eats Almond Butter



1/4 cup apricot fruit spread

2 TBSP soy sauce

2 TBSP apple cider vinegar

2 tsp Dijon mustard

2 chicken breasts

1 serving Mary’s Gone Crackers Sticks & Twigs (my pretzels of choice)


In a small bowl, combine first 4 ingredients.


Toss chicken breasts in your apricot sauce and allow to marinate in the fridge for 12 to 24 hours.

To bake, pre-heat oven to 350° and place chicken in a greased glass baking dish. Pour marinade over chicken. Place pretzels in a food processor or blender and pulse until well crushed. Top chicken with crushed pretzels and bake for 1 hour or until cooked through.

Along side our apricot glazed crunchy chicken, I served kale sauteed in ghee, salt, and pepper. It was a delicious dinner!


Many thanks to Mae for creating The Cook’s Mission. It was fun to come up with a new dish based on ingredients I don’t normally use.
