Chicken with Pretzels and Couscous
Ingredients
  • 1  cup  pretzel sticks
  • 2/3  cup  unsalted peanuts
  • 1/4 - 1/2  teaspoon  crushed red pepper (optional)
  • 1/2  cup  refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • 1 14 - 16  ounce  chicken breast tenderloins
  • 1/2  cup  reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 16  ounce package  frozen sweet peppers and onion stir-fry vegetables
  • 1/2  cup  uncooked couscous
  • 2  tablespoons  seasoned rice vinegar
  • 1  tablespoon  canola oil
  • 1  Recipe  Dipping sauce
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.

  • 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.
