Game day is coming, and while for you that might mean football and pulling out the jerseys, for me it means food and lots of it. Nothing goes better with the big game than some serious snacks, and these pretzel baked chicken tenders are perfect for your game day spread. The best part? These pretzel baked chicken tenders are crunchy without being fried. A healthier game day snack option? You bet it is. Take a look at how to make your own pretzel baked chicken tenders so you can get your game day snacking on.

You would be amazed at how well rosemary pairs with both mustard and chicken. I advise you to give it a try with this recipe and see how you like it. If you wish, you can omit the rosemary altogether. The choice is up to you.

Once done, remove the pretzel baked chicken tenders and allow them to cool. You can pair these tenders with a sauce of your choice, but a few suggestions are mustard, a honey mustard blend, or even hot sauce. They don’t have any heat to them, so choosing a spicy sauce might be ideal. Or if you prefer non spicy, even a mayo blend or ketchup works too.

These chicken tenders will be nice and crunchy, which is nice because the pretzel adds the crunch instead of frying grease. This makes them a healthier option if you still need to count calories on game day. You can pair them with other healthy grab and go snacks such as veggies and hummus, guacamole and baked chips, or even mixed nuts. They are an excellent snacking option even when you feel like you don’t have a ton of options.

Our pretzel baked chicken tenders are incredibly easy to make, require very few ingredients, and can be whipped up in a jiffy. Add them to your game day spread for a little extra crunch. Your guests are sure to enjoy them, you will just have to decide whether or not you want to share the recipe!

Now let’s start adding some crunch to our chicken tenders. Here is how you will prepare your pretzel baked chicken tenders. Scroll down to get the complete recipe.

Sprinkle your chicken tenders with salt and pepper on each side.


Brush the Dijon mustard over the top of each tender.


Optional: sprinkle the rosemary on to the tenders.


Place your pretzels in a plastic baggie and zip closed. Use your hand or a rolling pin to crush the pretzels. You don’t want to reduce them to a powder, just smaller bits and chunks to create the crunchy coating for your chicken.


Sprinkle the crushed pretzels over the chicken liberally.


Place the tenders on a baking sheet (no need to grease) and bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
