Dinner ready in 25 minutes! Enjoy this nutty chicken served with creamy honey-mustard sauce – a perfect Southern-style entrée.

Ingredients

Chicken

2
boneless skinless chicken breast halves
2
tablespoons all purpose flour
1/3
cup purchased honey mustard salad dressing
1/2
cup finely chopped pecans
2
tablespoons butter

Sauce

2
tablespoons purchased honey mustard salad dressing
1/3
cup sour cream
1
teaspoon sliced green onions

Directions

  • 1 Place 1 chicken breast half, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick; remove wrap. Repeat with remaining chicken breast half.
  • 2 Place flour, 1/3 cup dressing and pecans in 3 separate small flat dishes. Coat each chicken breast half with flour. Dip in dressing to coat well. Dip in pecans, coating both sides.
  • 3 Melt butter in medium nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Add chicken; cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until chicken is fork-tender and juices run clear. Remove chicken from skillet; place on serving platter. Cover to keep warm.
  • 4 To drippings in skillet, add 2 tablespoons dressing and sour cream; cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens. Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with onions.
Tips  

In this recipe, the chicken breasts are pounded thin so that they cook quickly. The pecans coating the chicken tend to burn easily, so a shorter cooking time at a low temperature is necessary.

This pecan chicken recipe is the perfect entrée for a Southern-style meal. Sweet potatoes, buttermilk biscuits and collard greens or a green salad complete the menu.
