  • 1/3  cup 
    plain yogurt
  • 2   tablespoons 
    yellow mustard
  • 2   teaspoons 
    honey

Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a 15x10x1-inch pan with foil; coat with nonstick cooking spray; set pan aside. Place pretzels, 1/2 cup peanuts, and red pepper in food processor. Cover; process until coarsely ground; transfer to resealable plastic bag.
2.
Place egg product in shallow dish. Dip chicken tenderloins into egg product. Allowing excess egg product to drip off, transfer tenderloins, half at a time, to bag with crumb mixture. Seal bag; turn to coat chicken pieces. Arrange chicken in prepared pan. Bake chicken for 10 to 15 minutes or until no longer pink (170 degrees F).
3.
Meanwhile, in a saucepan combine broth and stir-fry vegetables. Bring to boiling. Stir in couscous; remove from heat. Cover; let stand 5 minutes. Chop remaining peanuts. Stir peanuts, rice vinegar, and oil into couscous mixture. Serve couscous mixture with chicken and dipping sauce. Makes 6 servings.
Dipping Sauce
1.
In a bowl combine yogurt, mustard, and honey.

Tip
  • Test Kitchen Tip: If you do not have a food processor, place pretzels in a large resealable plastic bag; seal bag and finely crush pretzels using a rolling pin or meat mallet. Finely chop 1/2 cup of the peanuts and add to pretzel crumbs in bag.
