Pretzel toasted coconut chicken!?

Huh? Yeah, that is right a chicken pretzel. I totally just came up with this is my head when I was thinking about how bad I wanted some pretzels. Imagine if you used mashed up pretzels as a bread crumb instead regular bread crumbs? It would be like a pretzel chicken. And if you cut up the chicken into little bite size pieces, you could call is “Pop pretzel chicken” Anyways, I know it sounds crazy. I am sure someone has tried this before but I am going to try it out and if you do let me know what you think!

So what you would need to do is take a big bag of pretzels and mash them up but still leave a few good chunks! (Don’t make it dusty, you still want the crunch) And then for a little sweet to the chicken and a layer of shredded sweet coconut. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering! I really think this would be amazing! It would be the perfect sweet/salty chicken mix but little bite size snacks!

THEN for the dip you can make a tzatziki sauce with cucumber and dill!  Am I the only one that thinks this sounds amazing? I can’t wait to try this!

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 (9 inch) zucchini, peeled
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil or butter, melted

Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil lightly greased with cooking spray.
  2. Cut the peeled zucchini in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Slice the zucchini ito 1/2 x 1/2 x 4 inch pieces.
  3. Combine the bread crumbs, cheese, and seasoned salt in a pie plate. Dip the zucchini fries into the melted margarine, then press into bread crumbs. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven’t stuck can fall away. Place the breaded zucchini onto the prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake the zucchini in the preheated oven until the fries are golden and tender, about 15 minutes.
