Here’s some  “how to” photos:

DSC_6046

All you need are some pretzels, honey roasted peanuts, an egg and chicken tenders

DSC_6047

Put the pretzels and nuts into a food processor and pulse until they are evenly ground.

Get it pretty finely ground so it will adhere to the chicken

Dip the tenders into the nut mix, then into the egg wash, then back into the nut mix

and place in into a shallow baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking oil spray.  Drizzle with a little Olive oil.  At this point you can refrigerate it for baking later.  When ready to bake, put into a 350 oven for about 30 minutes.

To make the mustard sauce:

DSC_6054_2

Add vinegar and beat again, then add slightly cooled butter.

Put into a saucepan and cook over low heat for 5 minutes until thickened.  At this point you can serve the sauce or refrigerate it until later.

This recipe was generously shared by NG’s wonderful Mom, Sally.  It’s delicious!

1 T Butter
1 Egg
3 T Granulated sugar
3T Prepared Mustard (regular or brown)
1 tsp Paprika
1/2 cup Vinegar (regular or cider)

Melt butter & set aside.
In small bowl, with rotary beater, beat egg, sugar, mustard and paprika.
Add vinegar and beat again.
Blend into cooled butter.
Cook, stirring over low heat, just until thickened, about 5 minutes.
Cool.

This recipe makes about 1 cup, or one 1/2 pint jar as pictured above.

Sally said she usually makes 2 or 3 batches of this for our Thanksgiving Ham and Turkey dinner, and to send some home with the family.  Keep any leftover sauce in a sealed jar in the fridge.

Enjoy the game, I hope your team wins!
