Brewfest Pretzeled Chicken

This is gonna be another guild bank clean out story. I know, I know. I told you all about it only a few days ago. But you really have no idea how large and cluttered my bank is! It takes a while to sort through and I have to agonize over every thing I want to keep or delete. My bank should be in the World of Warcraft Museum of Natural History. I could show you the evolution of WoW through expansions just by dusting off all the armor sets I have. I could give you a tour that covers the lore of the cultural festivities that each faction holds at different times of the year.

But I digress. There was another food item that I discovered hiding in a corner of my bank. Brewfest pretzels! Good thing pretzels don't really go bad for a very long time. And even if your pretzels do get stale you can still use them for this recipe! It's tasty, salty and goes well with any dip that you'd normally use for pretzels. Just go ahead and make it a wanna-be fondu party and slice up some carrot sticks, celery and maybe some snow peas to dip too!
