"I made this last night for guests. Everyone loved it. I served it with Basmati Rice, sauteed zucchini and onion and a tossed salad. I will make this again!"

"I thought this was a very good way to dress up a boneless skinless chicken breast! The only thing I added was a little bit of cinnamon to the pecan mixture. I will definitely be making this again!!"

"Really easy and very tasty. I use one 8 oz chicken breast halved for the two of us. With potato and vegetable, it's plenty of food."
