I made up this dish years ago, and it still remains a family favorite. It's a fast and healthy weeknight meal, but the fresh mushrooms and sherry make it special enough for a weekend dinner party.

This recipe could hardly be simpler to prepare. The chicken gets a wonderful tangy taste, and no one will know you used convenient ingredients like a bottle of salad dressing and onion soup mix...unless you tell them.

The pecans that give this dish its unique nutty flavor are plentiful in the South, and so is chicken. I love to make and serve this easy dish because the chicken comes out moist, tasty and crispy.

The savory coating on this chicken has the satisfying flavor of Parmesan cheese. It's easy enough to be a family weekday meal yet impressive enough to serve to guests. When I make this chicken for dinner, we never have leftovers.

Some years ago I found this recipe and streamlined it to fit our family. The broccoli adds a lot to the rich flavor. Phyllo is fun to work with, and its flakiness turns standard ingredients into a special, satisfying entree.

"This is one of our favorite ways to make chicken. The coating really stays on, and the pan is easy to clean afterward," writes Polly Coumos of Mogadore, Ohio.
