Pretzel Crusted Chicken Tenders with Spicy Cheddar Sauce



I've been making this pretzel chicken recipe for years but I normally serve it with a honey mustard sauce. I decided to mix it up this time around and serve it with a spicy cheddar sauce. Man, I am so glad that I did! It was a hit and a new family favorite!

1 tsp onion powder

3/4 cup reduced fat shredded sharp cheddar

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Line a baking sheet with foil and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix pretzels, paprika, onion powder, and garlic powder.

Dip each chicken tender into the pretzel mixture making sure both sides get well-coated.  Place on baking sheet. Repeat with remaining chicken.

Bake for 20-25 minutes or until pretzel coating is browned and chicken is thoroughly cooked.  Slice and drizzle with the spicy cheddar sauce. Enjoy!

For the Sauce:
In a saucepan, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour and cook for 1 minute. Whisk in the milk and horseradish sauce, and cook until slightly thickened. Stir in the cheese.
