Pretzel-Crusted Chicken

I experimented tonight with a chicken dish that turned out really well. We had a bachelor friend over and I knew we'd need to have plenty! Here's what I did:

2 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon honey mustard (dijon would be fine, too)
1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
24 pretzel twists, crushed

Combine first six ingredients in a small bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir. If butter isn't melted, microwave again at 10-second intervals until melted and ingredients combine well. Place the chicken in a greased 9x13 baking pan. Brush the glaze over both sides of chicken. Sprinkle with the crushed pretzels. Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through.

Tonight, I served it with mashed potatoes, Buttery Corn Casserole, and Green Beans with Pecans.
