Copycat Wendy's Pretzel Pub Chicken

I have been seeing this ad for the past month and while the sandwich itself didnt get the best reviews(from all I have read that is almost solely due to the content of its components, not the acutal flavor) I had to give it a try is GREAT!!!!

This photo is a "regular" bun....see GF on the bottom
My Chicken was gluten free as well.


Muenster Cheese
Mixed Greens
Tomato Slices
Not included in the original, but everything is better with BACON!

Pretzel Buns: just providing a link for these as I have not changed them a bit!

Regular.....just shape as hamburger buns

Gluten Free...

Cheddar Honey Mustard Sauce:

1 TB butter
1 TB flour OR for gluten free 1 TB cornstarch
1/3 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
2 TB yellow mustard
2 TB honey

Heat butter over medium heat add 1 TB flour and stir well to make a smooth roux....add milk, stir and heat until thickened, then add cheese and stir until fully melted....then stir in mustard and honey until well combined...set aside.
If using cornstarch melt butter, stir cornstarch into cold milk then add to melted butter and proceed as directed above.

Chicken Filets:

3 chicken breasts cut in half and pounded to 1/2 inch

2/3 cup brown rice flour
1/4 cup potato starch
3 TB tapioca starch
1 tsp xanthan gum
1 cup all purpose flour

1 tsp salt
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp smoked paprika

1 cup water
2 tsp pepper sauce

Mix all your dry ingredients in a shallow dish

Place water and pepper sauce in a separate dish.

Dip chicken in flour mixture, then into water mixture and back into flour mixture to coat well. Repeat will all pieces and set aside

Heat 1 cup oil in a pan and add chicken frying for 5-7 minutes on each side until golden brown. (you want a target of 165 degrees in the center)
Drain on paper towels..
You could bake or broil these in place of frying for a reduced fat content!


Warm you buns as desired...I warmed my Muenster on the bottom bun. On the top spread some mayo and the Cheddar Honey Mustard.

Place a chicken filet on top of the muenster, top with some greens, tomato and bacon(if using) and place the top bun on......CHOW DOWN!!!!!

This one is with the Gluten Free Bun:
