Crunchy Oven-Fried Chicken

This recipe produces a tender, juicy chicken with a delectable nutty crust.


2 whole chicken breasts (or pieces of your choice), skinned, boned and halved

1 cup pecans, finely chopped

1/4 cup breadcrumbs

2 teaspoons paprika

1 teaspoon salt

3/4 teaspoon pepper

1/3 cup mayonnaise


Honey Tips

Honey Is Sweeter Than Sugar

Due to the high level of fructose, honey is 25% sweeter than table sugar.


Preheat oven to 425°.
Rinse chicken and pat dry. Set aside.
In a shallow bowl combine next 5 ingredients.
In another bowl whisk together mayonnaise and honey. Coat chicken with honey mixture. Then roll in nut mixture until well coated.
Spray a roasting pan with cooking spray. Arrange chicken pieces in pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Turn. Bake an additional 10 minutes, or until chicken is tender.
