Chicken with Pretzels and Couscous

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; coat with nonstick cooking spray; set pan aside. Place pretzels, 1/2 cup peanuts, and red pepper in food processor. Cover; process until coarsely ground; transfer to resealable plastic bag.
  2. Place egg product in shallow dish. Dip chicken tenderloins into egg product. Allowing excess egg product to drip off, transfer tenderloins, half at a time, to bag with crumb mixture. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken pieces. Arrange chicken in prepared pan. Bake chicken for 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170 degrees F).
  3. Meanwhile, in a saucepan combine broth and stir-fry vegetables. Bring to boiling. Stir in couscous; remove from heat. Cover; let stand 5 minutes. Chop remaining peanuts. Stir peanuts, rice vinegar, and oil into couscous mixture. Serve couscous mixture with chicken and dipping sauce. Makes 6 servings.

From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

If you do not have a food processor, place pretzels in a large resealable plastic bag; seal bag and finely crush pretzels using a rolling pin or meat mallet. Finely chop 1/2 cup of the peanuts and add to pretzel crumbs in bag.

Dipping Sauce

Directions

  1. In a bowl combine yogurt, mustard, and honey.

I was excited when I saw this recipe, but after making it on Superbowl Sunday, it was not a champion with the family. The flavor of the chicken was non-existent and there was no peanut flavor. The pretzels basically added a flour type coating with salt. The couscous would have been better with the vegetables cooked and served separately. The dipping sauce was tasty, but I've also had better. Sorry, it was a disappointment to us.
