Pecan Parmesan Chicken Recipe

Publisher Photo

MY REVIEW

Very good. Easy to make and think that you could just make it on the stove top in warmer months if you don't want to heat up the oven to finish it off. Will be making again for sure.

This was really good. I prepared it as described and wouldn't change a thing. Children and adults enjoyed. It's a keeper!
