1 cups finely crushed cornflakes (or bran flakes, which I used instead)
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400


Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over pounded chicken breast; set aside.


Combine honey, mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well.


Combine cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well.


Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.


Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray.


Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray


Bake at 400 for 20-30 minutes or until done.


I served this with steamed broccoli and garlic mashed potatoes.

I've beeen trying to cook healthier and started trying out many Cooking Light recipes. This recipe was inspired by another Cooking Light recipe, which I altered based on the ingredients I had on hand.
