  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup ground pecans (see note)
  • 3/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs (store-bought)
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

  • 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted

What To Do:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Combine buttermilk and egg in a shallow dish.
     
  2. Combine ground pecans and next 4 ingredients in another shallow dish.
     
  3. Place flour in a third shallow dish; dredge chicken in flour. Dip in buttermilk mixture; drain. Dredge chicken in pecan mixture.

Notes
  • Let your food processor be your new best friend for such jobs as grinding a cup of pecans. It'll also do a good job at coarsely chopping them.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I made this for my boyfriend and it was a big hit!! Can't believe how moist it was.

Would love to find out the nutritional facts on this dish...is there anywhere I can go to find this?

I ate pecan chicken at a restaurant and I just loved it. this sounds like what I ate. Can't wait to try this.

We like chicken, but, we love pork. I used this recipe exactly as written except I used boneless pork loin chops. They were so moist and tender, due to the butter milk. I'll be using this again and again. I'll try it on chicken too. Thanks Mr. Food....I'll miss you :(

Kitchen Sink Pie

Our Kitchen Sink Pie was inspired by the famous "Kitchen Sink" ice cream dessert from Jaxson's Ice Cream Parlor in Florida. Like the original, it's got everything but the kitchen sink, including an ice cream cone crust, piles of ice cream, and all sorts of sundae toppings!
