Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Tenders

Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Tenders (a.k.a. What to do with the "free" pretzels you get on an airplane)

5 boneless skinless chicken tenders
3 bags airplane pretzels (about 3/4 cup)
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
3/4 cup flour
1 egg
3 tbs margarine

Combine pretzels, breadcrumbs, chili powder, and Cajun seasoning in a food processor.  Pulse until pretzels are crushed and mixture is combined.  Place in a bowl.  In another bowl, place flour. In a third bowl, place egg. Beat well.
Heat margarine in a large skillet over medium high heat.  Dip each piece of chicken in flour, then egg, then breadcrumb mixture.  Cook for 5 minutes on each side, until chicken is cooked through and no longer pink.
