Baked Pecan Chicken

My husband loves this dish, and it is moving right on up their into the family favorites.  I came up with this while my mom was visiting.  My mother eats a gluten free diet so I could not just roll the chicken in bread crumbs.


3 pounds chicken breast
1 Tbsp onion powder
2 tsp Italian herb seasoning mix
1 Tbsp Garlic powder
1 tsp Paprika
1 Cup Pecans

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray olive oil in the bottom of a 13×9 inch baking dish. Now put all of the spices and pecans into a food processor, and blend them until a crumbly powder like texture.  You could use a blender if you do not have a food processor. Once you have the mixture prepared coat the chicken pieces evenly in the mixture. If you want it to cook faster cut the pieces smaller before coating in the mix.  Bake for approximately 45 minutes, or until the chicken is done.

I serve this over brown rice.

For a side dish we usually have green beans or salad.

I totally forgot to take a picture of this dish, and my husband ate it all.
