I needed an easy way to use up the leftover pretzels I had from making the pretzel chocolate chip cookies last Sunday. I asked my fellow nesties for some ideas and they delivered. This was a quick and easy dinner that required only four ingredients. This chicken came out very juicy and the pretzels created a nice salty crust on top.
