Pretzel Dijon Chicken

Are you looking for an easy dinner that pairs well with comfort foods like stuffing and mashed potatoes? Then you need to try my pretzel dijon chicken!

Sunday dinners are always something to look forward to at our place. Granny makes something really good and we eat supper at 3 p.m. It's generally a bigger meal than normal and serves as both lunch and dinner that day. And it's ALWAYS amazing!

I love the holidays. Living thousands of miles from home isn't always easy, so it's always nice to get back to my old stomping grounds for a few days. There's nothing better than cows outside my window when I wake up in the morning! Wait, let me clarify: cows on the correct side of the fence! We occasionally have cows get out and start aerating the lawn. This doesn't make Granny too I'm sure you can imagine.

One of my favorite things to do while I'm home besides run on the same back roads that I've been running on since I was 12 is to feed the cows. On our farm as it is today, this isn't a huge job, but I still love it. Along with making sure the cows have enough hay, we have to make sure all of the waterers are filled. I take my water bottle with me everywhere. Likewise, we make sure our cows always have access to fresh water.

Since it's usually somewhere between 45 and 55 degrees in the winter, the cows usually like to lay out in the pasture. They have a barn to go in, but on a nice day when it's not raining (more like misting or drizzling), they like to soak up a little sun.

When I was telling Granny and Grandpa about all the cooking I've been doing this year, they told me I HAVE to cook while I'm home. Okay! I whipped up this Pretzel Dijon Chicken when I was looking through my cupboards. I was pretty impressed with it and if you like pretzels, mustard and chicken, I think you'll like it too.
