Prep Time:
30 minutes


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 12 cup olive oil
  • 13 cup gluten-free whole-grain mustard
  • 2 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 14 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 12 cups crushed plain, gluten-free, dairy-free pretzels*


  1. Preheat oven to 425°.
  2. Cut chicken into 3 by 34 inch thick strips. Set aside.
  3. In a bowl, whisk together oil, mustard, honey, vinegar, garlic powder, and salt and pepper to taste. Set aside half of the honey-mustard for a dipping sauce. Pour remaining half of mixture into a large shallow plate.
  4. Coat each chicken strip in plate with honey mustard. Then dredge each strip in crushed pretzels.
  5. Place chicken onto an oiled baking pan. Bake for 7 minutes and flip. Bake for another 7 to 10 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.
  6. Serve chicken strips with reserved honey-mustard dipping sauce.


  • *Crush the pretzels into very small pieces, so they will adhere to the chicken more easily.
