I got this from Southern Living Magazine. I had some pecan meal in the freezer and thought this might be a good way to use some of it. It wasn't as good as it sounded. The coating seemed a little bland and almost tasted like some kind of hot cereal. The nut coating on the bottom of the chicken didn't brown and seemed a little soggy too. I won't make this again.
