We love a good fried chicken sandwich, and this is one of the best ones out there. Coat your chicken in crushed pretzels and fry for a few minutes on the stove for the crispiest outer coating, then finish it off in the oven.

I used an egg and added some mstarrd to it, rather than straight mustard before rolling it into the crumbs. So, I did not make it exactly as written. Despite that change, I think it's a great receipe. The cook times were perfect, the flavor of the chicken sandwiches were really tasty. My entire family ate them and declared them perfectly cooked and delicious. More flavorful than I was expecting based on the ingredieints. I also made honey mustard for the buns.

I followed the recipe as written. I will definitely make it again with a few changes. The pretzel coating did not stay on well, not sure what I will change there.
