Sweet Garlic Pecan Honey Chicken

I saw this on Facebook, and decided to try it out. I figured, since it only had a few ingredients that it could not turn out to bad. Wow, what a nice chicken dish! The chicken breasts were very moist and very tasty!.I loved to combined ingredients..This is my take on this wonderful dish. Although it said to use 4 chicken breast, I used only 2 and it was a perfect amount for the topping on the chicken.

My dinner even looked like the recipe photos..which is amazing..these photos are mine.

How to Make Sweet Garlic Pecan Honey Chicken


  1. Oven: 450
    Line a baking dish with aluminum foil and lightly coat with cooking spray or brush with olive oil. I used homemade pan grease (I use instead of cooking spray)
  2. Take the whole garlic cloves and place on a napkin and put in microwave and microwave for 20 to 30 seconds. The cloves will now slip out of their skins and you can chop and mince as needed...careful they are hot hot.
  3. In a small fry pan, saute chopped or minced garlic in the olive oil and butter till tender and then remove from heat.
  4. Stir in brown sugar and add your spices. I would recommend a season or spice blend that you like for your first try at this dish.
  5. Place the chicken breast in your prepared baking dish and cover with your garlic/brown sugar mixture.
    Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Bake, uncovered for 30 to 35 minutes depending on the size of your chicken breast..I use a meat thermometer, and when it registers 180 degrees, it is done.
  7. I served this chicken dish with rice, peas and garlic bread. I had leftover macaroni salad also, but was too full to eat any, so I will have it the next day.
  8. Cabela's spice blends can be purchased at their stores or over the internet..This Pecan Honey seasoning is my favorite.
