"I made a variation on this recipe tonight. I changed it by using walnuts instead of pecans, dusting with flour before the egg-white, and only coating one side of the rather large chicken breast filet I used and shared with my husband. Smaller cutlets, as described in the recipe, would have been easier to handle, but the ten ounce one I cooked did come out delicious!

The crust was firm and thick, and adhered well to the chicken, which was tender enough to cut with a fork. It was also quick and easy to make. I can see this recipe becoming a regular weeknight dinner at my house."

"Excellent. I used chicken thighs, cause I can't eat chicken breasts, and very finely ground the pecans down to nearly a flour, also added a bit of parmesan cheese to the original recipe. I cooked two per the recipe, and baked the remainder of the recipe cause I didn't want to stand over the stove and didn't heat up the right size pan to cook in one batch."

"I really like this. Prep was pretty quick. The coating was just enough. I used finely ground walnuts because I didn't have pecans. Very nutty and flavorful"

"This was very good, but I think I would make a little more breading the next time I make it."
