In the South, we love our fried chicken and we also love pecans. This is my favorite way to combine the two. I treat moist chicken breasts to a crunchy coating of pecans, Parmesan cheese, basil and oregano.—Dawn Harvey, Danville, Pennsylvania

"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."
