I enjoy this Pecan-Crusted Chicken because I love nuts for both the texture and the flavor that they give to a dish. Using pecans in the coating instead of cornmeal or breadcrumbs adds more crunch as well as a hint of southern style. Although for this Pecan-Crusted Chicken we usually use chicken breast you could also use this with legs and/or thighs plus it works with pork.
