salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 400° degrees F
Grease a baking pan with a little bit of oil.

Chicken breasts need to be thinned out. Use mallet and wax paper. Cover the chicken slices with wax paper and pound down to 1 " thick.
In a blender, combine the pretzels, parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and paprika. Pulse until you get a fine consistency. Place in a mixing bowl.
In another mixing bowl, beat the egg with salt and pepper.
Dip the chicken strips (one at a time) into the egg mixture and then into the pretzel mixture. Then place each chicken strip onto the baking pan.
Bake in the lower oven rack for 20-25 mins, or until coating is golden.
Remove from the oven and top with extra cheese.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce. Example: Honey-Mustard, BBQ Sauce.
