We love chicken, and pecans...I saw a similar recipe in a magazine, but they used pecans as a topping over the chicken...I wanted something I could incorporate into the batter, so I decided to grind the pecans up fine...easy and quick to fix, goes great with pan grilled new potatoes...Depending on your other side items, this could feed up to 8 people...or makes for very nice left overs...
