Honey Pecan Crusted Chicken

5 from 1 reviews




  1. Preheat the oven to 450.
  2. Place the pecans a food processor and pulse until finely chopped (go easy — you don’t want a paste). Add the cereal, spices, and honey and pulse a few more times to combine.
  3. Set up two large shallow dishes in an assembly line. Beat the egg in the first dish and place the pecan/cereal mixture in the second dish. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper to hold the breaded fillets, and place at the end of the assembly line.
  4. Season the chicken pieces with a little salt and pepper. Working with one piece at a time: dip in the egg to coat evenly; and then dredge in the pecan/cereal mixture, pressing down to make the coating adhere. Try to use one hand for the dry breading and one hand for the wet– otherwise, your hands will end up a mess. Place the breaded chicken on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining pieces.
  5. Place baking sheet in the oven and bake chicken for 20 minutes or until cooked through.
  6. Serve with honey mustard for dipping!
