Reviews for Pecan and Sesame Seed-Crusted Chicken
"This is my son's favorite chicken!"
"My husband and I loved this. Did not have sesame seeds but it had great flavor and was very moist. Definitely make again."
"Made this using chicken breasts that i had cut into several small pieces about 6 or 8 in total a bit easier for my little one to eat. Used smoked paprika instead of regular, used buttermilk instead of regular milk, and had to make the unfortunate substitution of walnuts for pecans. I love pecans and couldn't believe I bought the wrong nut. Nevertheless, it turned out great! I will try it again soon with pecans! :D Crunchy on the outside, moist on the inside... Perfect!"
"My family adored this recipe. Just don't overcook, and it will be super moist and juicy!!"
"This is an amazing dish. I have nothing to say against it. It was so tasty it's hard to believe. I felt like it's something I would have been delighted to receive at a restaurant!M."
