I love pretzels with mustard and this recipe really shows off that wonderful pairing. It is a great chicken recipe that yields a crispy and flavorful crust and tender juicy meat. Depending on the flavor you want to experience you can use Honey Mustard or Dijon. To ensure a crisp crust, it's imperative to use thick, hard pretzels, like sourdough or Salzstangen. WINE: A fruity wine with some sweetness, like a German Riesling, makes a nice counterpoint to the salty pretzel, and works even better as a complement to pretzels and Dijon mustard. This choice works well with the Honey Mustard also as it will make your wine seem drier than it really so a Riesling will be a nice balance. I chose a sweet 2004 St. Urbans-Hof Riesling which paired nicely. If you want a wonderful taste sensation try a 2001 Langwerth von Simmern Erbacher Marcobrunn Spatlese Riesling that is not quite as sweet.
