Expert Tips

In this recipe, the chicken breasts are pounded thin so that they cook quickly. The pecans coating the chicken tend to burn easily, so a shorter cooking time at a low temperature is necessary.

This pecan chicken recipe is the perfect entrée for a Southern-style meal. Sweet potatoes, buttermilk biscuits and collard greens or a green salad complete the menu.
