The Anti-Chicken Fingers Movement – Honey-Pecan Chicken Breasts

This recipe will bring fun back to chicken breasts.  The key is in the cayenne…use as much or as little to meet your preference!  We use about 1/4 teaspoon.  My husband would probably love around 3/4 teaspoon!  I leave it off of the kids’ chicken breasts because Luke is super picky about “spice”. Original Recipe

Honey-Pecan Chicken Breasts

2 (6 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 teaspoon minced garlic
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons finely chopped pecans

Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle with salt, pepper and cayenne. In a large nonstick skillet, brown chicken in butter; add garlic. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until juices run clear. Drizzle honey over chicken; sprinkle with pecans. Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

Buon appetito!
