  • 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.

Expert 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.
