Preheat oven to 375◦F. Line baking sheet with aluminum foil; lightly coat with cooking spray.
Place all marinade ingredients in a food processor or chopper. Process well.
Taste-test the marinade - you will taste sweet, spicy, and salty. Add more sugar or more fish sauce (in place of salt) to adjust the taste. You can also add more chili if you want it spicier. Pour into bowl; add chicken. Allow at least 1 hour for marinating, or longer (up to 24 hours).
When ready to cook, thread the marinated chicken onto the Pretzel Rods. Place on prepared baking sheet; bake until chicken is cooked through – about 10 minutes depending on thickness of chicken.
Serve with your favorite dipping sauce.
