Man life has been crazy recently and I have been a bit distracted from blogging. I keep thinking today is the day I will get back into it. I have been cooking and taking photos but writing a post is getting harder and harder!

At first it was just finding the time, now it is something different! It is 11am and I have nothing else to do but write a blog post before I pick the boys up from school. That is 4 hours to get a post written. Shall I tell you a secret? I have been sat here since 10am trying to decide what to write!

It’s the funny thing about writing, once you stop you lose all confidence in your own ability.
“I don’t have anything new to say”
“What if this post is terrible?”
“Is there anything to say about these Crispy Pretzel Coated Chicken Fingers?”

“Oh man was this always this hard?”
“I wonder if an 5th coffee will help”  
They are all flying through my head!

Then I realised, just like getting back in the on a bike after you fall off, or eating toast after a really sore throat, or the first glass of wine after a hideous hangover, you just have to do it. The first time may not go so well, but you’ll have done the first time and you know the second time will be easier. (Hmmmm, maybe the hangover analogy isn’t the best!) But I am still sure doing something is the best plan.
So that is what I am doing, I am sat with a large coffee (kind of wishing it was a large wine) and writing everything that is flying about in my head! It isn’t Shakespeare, in fact it isn’t even a free book from Amazon but it is at least some words on a page.

I really won’t be offended if you jump straight down to the recipe, I mean food is so much better than my drivel!

But I have made a start, I have taken my first step and tomorrow I will be back up and running….well maybe, but I will certainly be more ready than I was this morning. (And in case you were wondering, I am not sure if the 5th coffee helped, but it did make me type super quickly!!!!)

Okay, so these Crispy Pretzel Coated Chicken Fingers are something the boys and I made in the school holidays! It rained and rained and rained for pretty much two weeks solid. Not a fun holiday for the boys! And not a fun holiday for me either! Every day they spent inside left them not tired at bedtime and getting more and more cranky with each other!

So we hit the kitchen! They were weary of the breading process and the messy hands, but we got there. Although neither of them could grasp the concept of one hand for the egg and the other hand for the dry ingredients!

Still they had fun. (There are a few photos of them cooking after the recipe on this post)

    Hi Claire. These sound really good! I happen to love pretzels so coating chicken in them in a win win! What did you use for a dipping sauce? Your boys look very intense helping you, good sign that they are dedicated to the task at hand. The end result of their efforts is that they were rewarded with a great meal that they helped make.

      Hi Dorothy,
      I made a honey mustard mayo to dip these babies in 😀
      Although the boys reached for the ketchup!

      They do love helping in the kitchen…..although the mess is always far bigger 😉 (BOYS!)
