Dipping Sauce

  • 1 cup peaches
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp grainy Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp garlic


  1. Place pretzels in a plastic bag and with a rolling pin crush into small pieces
  2. In a bowl mix tapioca, salt and pepper
  3. Mix egg, honey and mustard in another bowl
  4. Take a few pieces of chicken at a time and dredge in tapioca mixture, then in in egg mixture, then put into plastic bag and shake and coat with pretzels
  5. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake 350F for 15-20 minutes depending in size of chicken pieces
  6. Mix sauce ingredients together in a blender or food processor and dip chicken into sauce- I like to leave my dipping sauce a bit chunky but you can puree it if you prefer
