You’ve never had chicken this good! ┬áPecan encrusted chicken with a bourbon glaze – so yummy!


  • 1/2 Cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 Cup Progresso plain bread crumbs
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 TB butter
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1/4 Cup dijon mustard
  • 1/4 Cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 2/3 TB bourbon whiskey
  • 2 TB soy sauce
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 Cup + 1 TB butter (cut into small cubes)
  • 1/2 Cup sliced green onion


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit
  2. Mix bread crumbs and pecans. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.
  3. Dip the chicken breasts into the egg mixture and then into the crumbs and pecan mixture fully coating them.
  4. Heat the 1 TB butter and 1 TB olive oil in a skillet on medium high. Once hot, add the chicken and brown on both sides, for about 1 – 2 minutes. Place the chicken on a parchment lined cookie sheet.
  5. Bake the chicken in the oven for 15 – 20 minutes or until juices run clear.
  6. In a small saucepan whisk together the dijon mustard, dark brown sugar, bourbon whiskey, soy sauce and worcestershire sauce. Heat on medium low and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat.
  7. Immediately add the butter one cube at a time whisking until it completely dissolves.
  8. Place the chicken on a large platter and add the bourbon mixture. (You don’t have to use it all, it makes a lot of bourbon mixture.) Top with green onions.
