Ingredients

2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper 

Canola oil, for grilling 

1/2 cup mayonnaise 

1/2 cup whole-grain Dijon mustard 

1 cup finely crushed pretzels 

1/3 cup grated Parmesan 

Directions

Special equipment:
12 bamboo skewers
  1. Preheat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  2. Cut each piece of chicken lengthwise into 6 slices. Thread each strip through a bamboo skewer. Sprinkle the chicken generously with salt and pepper.
  3. Using a rag and tongs, generously oil the grill pan. Place the chicken skewers on the grill. Cook the chicken until lightly charred and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove the skewers from the grill to a plate or sheet tray and cover to keep warm.
  4. In a small bowl stir together mayonnaise and mustard. Put the crushed pretzels onto a large plate and combine with the grated cheese.
  5. Brush a chicken skewer with the Dijon mayonnaise, then roll into the pretzel and cheese mixture to coat completely. Repeat with remaining chicken skewers and serve with extra Dijon mayonnaise for dipping.
