It’s time for another Secret Recipe Club recipe! Every month, a group of food bloggers trades names secret-Santa-style and makes one another’s recipes… and this month, I had the privilege of getting Culinary Adventures with Camilla.
Camilla is our group’s fearless leader, and she was also the mastermind behind #HotSummerEats early this summer, which was fantastic! So i was ecstatic to get her blog!
What I love about Camilla’s blog is that she uses a lot of unusual ingredients, stuff I’ve always wanted to try, but never knew how to use. Some day soon, I’m going to take a trip to our local specialty grocery store so I can stock up on ingredients to make some of Camilla’s other recipes, like Elderflower Soda, Spicy Pear Cake, and Matcha Green Tea Ice Cream.
But for today… I just had to try her Pretzel-Crusted Chicken recipe! She made it with a Maple-Mustard Dipping Sauce, and let me tell you, this one is a real winner. It’s easy, it’s tasty, and you probably already have the ingredients in your house. Winner, winner, chicken dinner. Literally.
I used chicken tenders instead of thighs, like Camilla’s original recipe, because that’s what I had in the house. Feel free to use your favorite boneless cut. This recipe would also be great if you sub out the protein for boneless porkchops. Yum!
I actually make two versions of Camilla’s sauce. First, I did it just like her recipe… then I added more sweetness with some honey, because Jeffrey isn’t a huge mustard fan unless the sauce is REALLY sweet. You can see my version of the mustard sauce recipe below, but I encourage you to check out Camilla’s version too, if you like a tangier mustard flavor.
Oh, and don’t forget to check out every one else playing along with Secret Recipe Club this week:
