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 :(
