Pecan Chicken


Here's a completely moist and delicious chicken recipe to add to your grocery list.  I think I may be in love with the honey/spicy mustard glaze and crunchy, toasty pecans.  I drooling just thinking about it!  Enjoy :)

PECAN CRUSTED CHICKEN
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
2 TBSP  honey
1 cup pecans
sea salt

Pre heat oven to 350. In a medium sized mixing bowl blend together the mustard and honey. Toss the pecans in a food processor and pulse until the nuts are finely chopped. Pour the chopped pecans either on a plate (paper plates are great so you can throw it away). Using a paper towel, remove any excess moisture from the outside of your chicken breasts. Taking one chicken breast at a time, place the chicken into the mustard/honey mixture and coat on both sides. Transfer chicken to the chopped pecans and again cover both sides. Place coated chicken into a greased glass baking dish (I used a little olive oil spray to cover the bottom of the dish) and sprinkle each chicken breast with just a little sea salt. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes or until the chicken juices run clear.
