Pecan Chicken with Chutney Recipe

Pecan Chicken with Chutney Recipe

These zippy, pecan-crusted chicken breasts are so tender, and the easy-fix peach chutney adds a sweet-sour taste. I usually serve them with rice on the side. —Carisa Bravoco, Furlong, Pennsylvania

"I found this recipe after having something similar in a restaurant. I had a honey pecan chicken so I just skip the chutney and drizzle with honey and it's delicious. I give this 4 stars because I don't make the chutney. It's also great leftover on a mixed greens salad with honey Dijon mustard dressing."
