How To Make pecan crusted chicken

    you will need a 14" cast iron dutch oven with a meat trivet. Or some thing to keep meat of the bottom.I usw a meat trivet so as not to let bottom of chixke cook to fast. Rub chicken breast with olive oil so pecan mix will stick to the meat.

Lay in the dutch oven and put cover on cook over med-high heat for 45-60 min. Chicken will cook fast,.cook till jucis run clear.
