You know you’re getting old when…

Ok, so there are a lot of things that I could use to finish this sentence.  But today, we are talking grocery shopping.  And let me tell you.  You know you’re getting old when going to the grocery store becomes a big chore.  And honestly, it’s probably not even that I’m getting older, but the fact that I have 2 young children.  (Don’t even get me started on how much it stresses me out to even think about going to the grocery store when #3 comes!)

A lot of the time, I just grin and bear it.  We do have to go to the store, after all.  But lately, I haven’t even been wanting to attempt it.  (Pushing a grocery cart alone is hard work when you are 8 months pregnant.  It’s too much trying to wrangle in 2 kids at the same time!!)  So most of the time, I have been leaving one child at home with my husband while I take the other, or I will wait until both are in bed for the night and I’ll go all by myself – which is actually quite nice!

I’m pretty anal about my grocery list.  It has to be organized, and I like to stick to it.  When I have one or both of the kids with me, they are constantly begging for one thing or another, and sticking to the list is pretty difficult.  But every once in awhile, I’ll spot something that will make even me break from that grocery list.  And there is one thing that has been taunting me for quite some time – Pretzel Crisps.

I’ve been through my fair share of pretzels in the last 7-ish months.  I’m still feeling nauseous, and it is eating that will usually help me feel a little better.  Sweets make it worse, so I always find myself grabbing something easy – like pretzels.  Enter the Pretzel Crisps.  Talk about the perfect snack.  So many fabulous flavors – like Buffalo Wing, Everything, and Jalepeno Jack.  I’ve made my way through plenty of these now – all for the sake of stopping the nausea!

But sometimes, you want to go a step further than snacking.  Take that snack into dinner time.  This wasn’t my first time making pretzel crusted chicken.  But these Pretzel Crisps are perfect for coating chicken!  I originally wanted to use the Buffalo Wing flavor and make a blue cheese sauce, but seeing that my family doesn’t really care for anything spicy, I thought that Garlic Parmesan with a cheesy garlic and herb sauce would be the way to go.  And I wasn’t disappointed at all!!  Even the kids ate this – which is saying a lot because they are extremely picky these days.

I kept my pretzel crumbs a little on the bigger side, mostly because I had 2 sleeping children when I made this and didn’t want to use the food processor to make the crumbs fine.  But it will work either way – big crumbs or small!  And the cheese sauce totally puts this over the top.  Who wouldn’t love this??

What is your favorite snack food – and do you ever incorporate it into dinner?

  1. What a creative idea to use pretzel crisps to “bread” the chicken! Love this. I bet the garlic parmesan flavor is awesome!
    And I can totally see where going to the grocery store at night by yourself is kind of great. 🙂

  2. Love the crunch from the pretzels but can I tell you what I REALLY love? The alouette. I seriously love that stuff. Great recipe, Deb!!

  3. Stephanie says:

    I love pretzel crisps! Those things are the perfect things to snack on. And I’m exactly the same way. I have my lists and it’s so much easier to shop alone!

  4. Erin says:

    I am a total boursin addict, which is similar to the cheese you used so I can definitely see this being amazing.

    Such a clever idea! I love Pretzel Chips! I am in the same boat as you with grocery shopping. I often go myself in the evenings as well and always stick to my list! 🙂

  6. Karly says:

    This look so crunchy and flavorful! Yum!

  7. A pretzel crust? Pure genius! It’s crunchy and a little bit salty – perfect combo! And I really need to get my hands on those pretzel chips – I think I’d eat an entire bag in just one sitting!

  8. Cassie says:

    Go Pretzel Crisps!! These are the best, and this recipe is beyond amazing, Deborah!

  9. I like to stick to my list too, and if my husband comes with, I spend alot more money!
    We both love pretzel crisps. This is such a great dish!

  10. I wish I was good at sticking to my list. I try to make my impulse buys produce or stuff I won’t feel bad about. This chicken looks incredible!

  11. carrian says:

    I love this recipe. It’s the sauce. The sauce looks like perfection. I can never turn down a good sauce.

  12. Haha, we will have to swap “shopping with 3” stories soon…I’m in exactly the same boat, due in November! I love getting out with my two, but they are getting much more opinionated and much less likely to stay in the cart. At least the new baby won’t be able to get away! This chicken looks like a definite crowd pleaser!

  13. Yum! I love using things besides bread crumbs to coat my chicken! One of my favorites is crushed tortilla chips. I love this version with pretzels especially with that creamy sauce!

  14. This looks amazing! Love everything in this recipe. Yummm!

  15. Rachel Cooks says:

    I love all the garlic-herb goodness you packed in here! Looks delicious!

  16. Aggie says:

    I could eat that whole bag of pretzel crisps. How awesome does this chicken look, I bet it was so delicious!

  17. Bree says:

    This looks amazing-I love the pretzel crisp add in! I can totally relate to the dreaded grocery (and target) trips with two little ones. Ugh!

  18. Such a clever recipe. I love the idea of the preztel crisps on the outside.

  19. Jill says:

    This was good, but not enough garlic. I might try adding garlic powder or garlic salt to the chicken before breading. It was yummy with steamed broccoli- even my picky little eaters enjoyed these “chicken nuggets”.
