Lets be honest, I’ve never met a crepe I didn’t like.

Honey Mustard Pretzel Crusted Chicken and Brie Crepes with Strawberry Basil Salsa | halfbakedharvest.com @hbharvest

Just like chocolate, I was brought up to adore crepes. Typically, my mom would always be all about ice cream, but since I started making them, and letting my imagination run a little wild, we’ve realized that savory are just as delicious as the sweet!

So, on a totally random note, lets talk about colleges. My younger brother is looking into colleges to transfer to for next year (he has been attending Colorado Mountain College online) and so far he has the University of South Carolina on his list. That’s it.

I keep telling him he has got to go look at other schools (his grades are pretty good), but he’s a little unmotivated. SO, I am trying to be the best big sister and help him out, but ahh…I got nothing.

So tell me, what are some good schools along the East or West coast. He does not want to be in the middle of the country, so you know, California, South Carolina, North Carolina – places like that.

I am all for him staying in Colorado, but ya, he’s not really into that.Β Any suggestions?

And double also? After spending a week in Florida and doing a decent amount of cooking? I am realizing that cooking and baking at sea level is about ten times better than cooking at 10,ooo feet.

Not going to lie, being in Florida made me second guess where I live about a million and one times.

Things grow in Florida. Where I live, things freeze…even in the summer.

Ok, ok. Done with my personal babbles, on to pretzel crusted chicken and brie crepes!

I decided to do a crusted chicken with crushed pretzels, walnuts and a little seasoning. You could even make the chicken for dinner and then use the leftovers for these crepes. Double meals. Yes!

I have done a ton of sweet crepes lately, so when the idea for a savory crepe came to mind, I went with it. I then proceeded to add lots and lots of brie cheese because well, crepes and brie and honey mustard just sounded like a really delicious combo.

Honestly, all I really NEED in the crepes are some melty brie and honey mustard. I mean, the other stuff is good, but the brie and honey mustard are where it’s at.

Just sayin.

It’s sort of like a fancy grilled cheese, but obviously so much better. HELLO, they’re with crepes!?!

These crepes are so fun, quick and easy. Perfect for upcoming Mother’s Day or really just spring and summer in general.

The rest is simple, feel free to adapt as you like, but like I said, just make sure to include theΒ brie and honey mustard. As long as you have them, you will be golden.

Oh but wait, that salsa. Yes, you MOST DEFINITELY NEED that salsa. Duh.

Ingredients

Pretzel Crusted Chicken + Crepes

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken tenders (or 2 large breasts cut into tenders)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 1/4 cups crushed thin pretzel twists
  • 1/2 cup toasted walnuts crushed
  • 4 large [whole grain crepes | https://www.halfbakedharvest.com/caramelized-peach-cherry-prosciutto-gorgonzola-salad-wbuckwheat-crepes/] or flour tortillas*
  • 8 ounces brie sliced
  • 1 cup fresh spinach

Honey Mustard Dressing

Salsa

  • 2 cups fresh strawberries diced
  • 1 small avocado pitted + diced
  • 1 small jalapeno seeded+ chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil chopped
  • juice of 1 lime

Instructions

Chicken

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, combine the honey, mustard, egg whites and seasoned salt, whisk well. Toss the chicken in the honey mustard wash and set aside. In a shallow bowl, combine the crushed pretzels and walnuts.
  • Remove one piece of chicken at a time from the mustard wash. Place in the pretzels crumbs and then use your fist to pound the pretzels onto the chicken. Place on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining chicken. Mist the tops of the pretzel crusted chicken with nonstick spray.
  • Bake in the oven for about 20-25 minutes, flipping chicken halfway through baking, until the chicken is cooked through. Slice the chicken into thin strips.

Dressing

  • While the chicken cooks combine all the ingredients for the dressing in a small bowl or glass jar. Whisk well and adjust seasoning to taste. Any leftovers can be stored in the fridge.

Salsa

  • In a bowl, combine the strawberries, avocado, jalapeno, basil and lime juice. Gently toss and season with salt if desired. Store in the fridge.

To Assemble

  • Heat a large skillet oven medium heat and add 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil. Working with one crepe at time lay the crepe flat in the skillet. Lay a few slices of brie on one quarter (basically make a triangle) of the crepe. Next, layer on the spinach and sliced chicken. Drizzle the chicken with the honey mustard dressing and then add a little salsa. Top with a few more slices of brie. Fold over the bottom of the crepe and then fold it over again to make a triangle. Cook for about 2-3 minutes and then flip and cook another 2-3 minutes or until the brie is all melty and gooey. Repeat with remaining crepes. Drizzle with the honey mustard dressing. EAT!

  1. Hey Tieghan! I made these crepes last night and they turned out amazing. They were a lot of work because there is so many different toppings to put inside! Definitely well worth the time though! Plus the fam LOVED them which was such a bonus!

    First time ever eating crepes which is so embarrassing, but true. The strawberry salsa was my favorite part which is crazy since I was iffy about it at first. Also love the honey mustard dressing with all the gooey brie cheese and moist chicken. Perfect combination!

    Keep the recipes coming girl! I love your recipes and am always making them. You really have talent!!

    1. THANK YOU!! So excited you loved the recipe, that makes me so happy! Crepes are my favorite as is strawberry salsa!

  2. Can’t wait to try this! It looks like a meal even my daughter will like.

    Have your brother look at Endicott College in Beverly MA, gorgeous campus right on the ocean and a cool little town 20 minutes north of Boston. The college is a mile walk to the train and you can head to Boston anytime!

  3. I made these the other night – so good! Plus I have left over crepe making goods for other fun things (warm peach and strawberry crepes with coconut cream, anyone?) and the baked chicken was perfectly cooked/tasty so great for a regular salad topping. Great work!

  4. Hi Tieghan!

    I’m the same boat as your brother as a Colorado kid and CMC Student. Also not wanting to stay local (but always buying local πŸ˜‰ I fell in LOVE with Flagler College in St. Augustine, Florida. In Colorado, I think we feel entitled to beautiful things, this school does not disappoint. Think Hogwarts on the beach with out British accents. Maybe it’s worth a google search πŸ™‚

    Back to the Food… I stoked to try this recipe you had me at Pretzel and strawberry.

    Great job you’ve done here! This whole blog is a work of art.

  5. Seems great!
    Just a question, where do the walnuts come in? Cuz ive searched in the directions and didn’t find them.

  6. The recipe looks yummy! On the college note, I’m another North Carolinean…and we do have several top notch universities. I went to NCSU, and it’s definitely a a great school! The location is also the best. However, the recommendation for a specific college should be based off what your brother wants to major in. I’m crossing my fingers that when I have children they will want to major in something State is known for…go PACK!

  7. Wonderful recipe – consider the University of Texas at Austin? My alma mater and Austin is AMAZING! Superb university – large but wonderful campus and great teaching.

  8. These sound so great- the idea of brie and strawberries together is making me swoon.

    No one has talked about California schools (sob). The UC and CSU systems are pretty nice (I currently go to a UC), though they are notoriously expensive for out-of-state and international students. They’re all over the state with all sorts of majors, so there’s plenty of different choices.

  9. This recipe combination…I can’t even handle it. The combinations you come up with are just amazing!

    -Kelsey

  10. I know know what perfection looks like! That chicken, the strawberries, the basil, the salsa! I love em all!

  11. Get in my mouth. Going to make this tonight, but since it’s nice out we’re doing a non-crusty (still honey-mustardy) grilled version of the chicken, and stuffing all the goodies in some lightly oiled, grilled pita pockets. I’m unreasonably excited. Thanks for the post!

    -Extremely Midwestern girl who went to college in rural Missouri (sorry)

  12. You had me at “pretzel”. HA! Seriously there is a lot going on with this one but it looks really good. I have a feeling the honey mustard flavor will pair well with the strawberry salsa. Genius!

  13. I don’t understand how a Coloradoan could fall in love with flat Florida, where hurricanes threaten every year to blow your house apart. And did I mention the gators that want to eat you? Arizona, however, has mountains, and forests and awesome saguaros that are blooming right this minute, and monsoons and the occasional rattlesnake who does not want to eat you! U of A would be a good choice for your bro. This strawberry basil salsa is a good choice for me! YUM! xxoo

  14. Im with team NC, we have some of the best schools in the nation. I went to UNC so I’m partial, but there are so many great choices. I love NC because you can go to the beach one weekend, and the mountains the next. Asheville is amazing!

  15. I am from NC so I have to rep either UNC or Duke, both are AMAZING schools! Also, if he is looking for something a little less intense, UNC Wilmington is a great school right on the beach! Ok, now back to these incredible looking crepes! Seriously, I am DYING over these photos! Can’t believe how yummy these look, Tieghan!

  16. I did my undergrad at the University of Georgia and it is literally the best college experience one can have. Granted I am a bit biased, but Athens has everything and more one could want. Downtown is full of local restaurants (..and bars) and has one of the best college football experiences you can get. It is a bit of a party school, but like I tell my students who are graduating and going off to college.. make smart choices and learn from your mistakes! πŸ™‚ My sister currently lives in Denver and tells me that Boulder is pretty similar to the atmosphere in Athens. It’s a “small town” which I liked. USC’s campus is right smack dab in the middle of Columbia, and I liked being separated from the big hustle and bustle of a larger city and going somewhere where the town literally caters and centers around the university and it’s students. UGA is definitely worth checking out if he wants a southern college experience! πŸ™‚

    1. Hey Sarah!!

      What an awesome college!! Totally going to suggest it to him! πŸ™‚ Also, such great advise!!

      Thanks so much and have a great weekend!

  17. Hi Tieghan!

    I follow many food blogs and last week I found you through a pinterest pin. You are one of the most talented food bloggers I have ever read bar none. You should be up for a Saveur award. I cannot believe how young you are to have all of this talent. All I can say is WOW!! Thanks for your recipes – I LOVE seeing you in my inbox!

    1. Hey Cheryl!!!
      THANK YOU! These are such kind words, you made my night!! Seriously, SO KIND! Giant smile on my face now! πŸ™‚

      Have a great weekend!

  18. Wow! Can you believe I have never had a crepe? I think I would want to start with savory because this is making me drool!!!! As a North Carolina native (that state has my heart), I have some great college recommendations. I went to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill so that school would be my #1 pick (DEFINITELY NOT DUKE!). University of North Carolina at Wilmington, though, sounds like a place your brother might like. It is on the coast of NC, so plenty of outdoor activities at the ocean (I know your brothers are into snowboarding so perhaps surfing would be fun!). There’s also Elon University, High Point University and Appalachian State University. NC really has great schools! Feel free to contact me if you need/want any further info!

    1. OMG!! You have to try some crepes already!! πŸ™‚

      And thank you!! These are such great suggestions. Getting ready to bombard him with texts! ::)

  19. Ah, these look so good! I love salads topped with chicken, strawberries and honey mustard, so these crepes sound delightful. As far as East coast college recommendations, I have to throw my alma mater, Georgia Tech, out there if he’s at all interested in engineering or sciences. It’s a highly ranked school with a beautiful campus nestled in Midtown Atlanta (a scrumptious foodie scene). And I know many people who go to the University of Florida or Florida State that absolutely love their schools and get a great education in a beautiful place. And think, then you could go visit him in sunny Florida, haha!

    1. Thanks Alexa!!

      I don’t think he is looking for engineering or science degree, but you never know! Also, yes to Florida! πŸ™‚

  20. This looks fantastic and I have all ingredients except the basil on hand! WIN WIN!
    Thanks Tieghan!

  21. I love crepes, growing up we always ate a variety of different crepes, with cream cheese filling being the most popular! This looks like an amazing combo!

  22. I don’t think I’ve ever stuffed crepes like this before, but I’m all for trying new things! Especially ones that have my tastes buds drooling, like this one πŸ˜‰
    I’m finishing up my college search, too, but don’t have any suggestions for Colorado schools (I’m from South Carolina so USC is one of my top choices, too) sorry πŸ™ I know how hard it can be seeing your siblings leave for college (two of my older ones have gone before me *sniff*) Hang in there, girl πŸ™‚

  23. I love pretzel crusted chicken and with melty brie and honey mustard stuffed into a crepe…holy yum that sounds incredible. We have some awesome colleges on the east coast but remember it’s the student not the college that gets the job…he needs to go somewhere that he feels most comfortable and can get the best experience out of his time there…college can be some of the best years of your life..at least I thought so it was a blast.

  24. I’ve never tried strawberry with savoury food but this looks so good I’d be willing to give it ago. These look delicious!
