For a fun twist on chicken nugget night, get your kids into the kitchen! These pretzel-coated tenders are as fun to make as they are to eat: With a rolling pin or meat tenderizer, your junior sous-chefs can help crush the pretzels inside a sealed food-storage bag, and they can coat the chicken by shaking the plastic bag with the flour and chicken inside.

Serve with honey-mustard or sweet-and-sour dipping sauce for more sophisticated palates, or use good old mustard and ketchup for kids with less adventurous tastes.
