Honey Dijon Pretzel Chicken Tenders

Ingredients

  • 1 package (about 1 1/4 pound) chicken tenders
  • 1 egg, whisked
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup crushed pretzels
  • 1 cup crushed Blue Diamond Honey Dijon Almonds

Preparation

  1. In small bowl, coat raw chicken with egg, mustard and spices. Let marinate in refrigerator for 20 minutes.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  3. Mix pretzels and almonds, and spread on large plate in even layer. Coat each chicken tender in pretzel-almond mixture, then place on greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Bacon Avocado Dip

Ingredients

  • 1 large avocado, peeled and mashed
  • 1/2 tomato, seeded and chopped
  • 1/3 cup Blue Diamond Jalapeño Smokehouse Almonds, chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 3 strips cooked bacon, roughly chopped
  • 2 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

Preparation

  1. In small bowl, mix all ingredients. Serve with tortilla chips or your favorite flavor of Nut Thins.

Grab n’ Go Popcorn Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1/2 cup popcorn
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 1 (10-ounce) bag mini marshmallows
  • 3/4 cup Blue Diamond Oven Roasted Sea Salt Almonds
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • Sea salt, for garnish

Preparation

  1. In large Dutch oven, heat oil and popcorn over medium heat. Cover with lid, shaking pan occasionally to coat kernels. Once you hear first pop, continue shaking pan until popping slows down and all kernels have popped. Set aside.
  2. In large saucepan, heat butter over medium-low heat, until melted. Add marshmallows and mix until fully melted. Add cooked popcorn. Gently stir until popcorn is evenly coated with marshmallow mixture. Add almonds and chocolate chips, and continue to stir until incorporated into mixture. Remove pan from heat, and let cool for few minutes. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  3. Moving quickly, mold popcorn-marshmallow mixture into balls with hands. (Washing hands with water will help ensure mixture won’t stick.) Place balls on parchment paper, and let cool. Store in airtight container or bag.
