  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon grainy dijon mustard, optional
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
  • 16 ounces chicken breasts, pounded thin
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup pretzels, crushed


  • Mix the honey, mustards, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic together in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper and divide in half.
  • Season the chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Prepare a bowl for the flour, a separate bowl with half of the honey Dijon mustard, and a separate bowl combining the panko and pretzels.

  • Bake in a preheated 400F oven until cooked (165F) and golden brown, about 15-25 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken breasts.
  • Serve straight from the oven with remaining Honey Dijon Mustard.
