One of my favorite snacks is honey mustard pretzels. Now I can enjoy those flavors in a hearty main dish recipe. It features crunchy pretzels, tangy mustard, and tender chicken.

I’ve partnered with Colman’s Mustard for this recipe, which features both their dry and prepared mustard. They’ve been making flavorful products since 1814. P.S. Check them out on Instagram @colmansusa for 12 Days of Giveaways!

How To Make Mustard Chicken

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice chicken in half.

Then, crush up the pretzels.

In a medium bowl, combine eggs and Colman’s mustard

In another medium bowl, combine flour, Colman’s Dry Mustard, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, and Salt/Pepper.

Coat chicken in flour mixture. Next, dredge in egg mixture.

Finally, coat in crushed pretzels.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until cooked through.

What Goes With Mustard Chicken

Honey mustard chicken goes great with a wide variety of sides. Our favorites are mashed/baked potatoes, green beans, and coleslaw.

How Long Do You Cook  Mustard Chicken?

How long you cook your chicken is going to depend on the cut and size. For boneless breasts, it should take around 20-25 minutes. Be sure a food thermometer reaches 165 degrees.




Do I Have To Use Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts?

I used boneless skinless chicken breasts for this mustard chicken. However, you could also make mustard thighs or tenders. The cooking time will need to be adjusted. Pork would also be delicious with these flavors.


Why Do You Cut the Chicken In Half?

In my mustard chicken recipe, I cutmy chicken in half so it is thinner and cooks quicker! The quicker it cooks, the less likely it is to dry out too!


How Do You Cut the Chicken In Half?

Place your chicken breast on a cutting board. Hold it down with your non-cutting hand. Slice through it from side to side using a sharp chef’s knife.
