Reviews for Pat's Pecan Chicken
"really tasty, but I ended up throwing more than half of the breading away.."
"I meant pie plate...not pit plate :)"
"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!"
"Absolutely amazing! After one bite of the chicken the entire family voted that we should have this once a week! The flavors are perfect and the coating holds up nicely in the oven."
"wonderful, I did add a little cajun spice to the bread mix"
"very good, although seems like a lot of breading for 4 x 4 oz chicken. I will be reducing quantities."
