Pat's Pecan Chicken Recipe

Parmesan, pecans, oregano and basil blend beautifully in this crunchy, crusted chicken. The recipe couldn’t be much easier, and no one will know it’s lower in calories. —Patricia Brown, Battle Creek, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 19, 2014

"We thought this was very good, next time, though, I'm going to use dry bread crumbs because it didn't stick to the chicken."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2012

"really tasty, but I ended up throwing more than half of the breading away.."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 15, 2011

"Wonderful flavor and so easy to whip up! I agree with wiscook on too much breading for just 4 x 4 oz chicken. I mixed my breading and only used a small amount for my two chicken breasts, froze the rest for next week!"

"I meant pie plate...not pit plate :)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 3, 2011

"Loved it! Great flavor. As for extra breading, I had some left over from the first time (just put part of it at a time in a pit plate to coat chicken) that I froze it and used it again. Made meal prep really quick!"
