Maple Pecan Crusted Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
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.
Ingredients You'll Need
salt & pepper to season
2 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1/4 cup honey (or maple syrup, which I used instead)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cups finely crushed cornflakes (or bran flakes, which I used instead)
1 cup finely chopped pecans
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.
