Forget breaded chicken breasts! Pecan chicken is infinitely better, with a sweet and crunchy crust that the whole family will love. This recipe is easy enough for a weeknight, but elegant enough for a special dinner. Serve it with roasted asparagus or Brussels sprouts for a healthy meal that will become a regular in your menu rotation.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine melted butter and honey in a shallow bowl and set aside. Combine almond meal, pecans, thyme and rosemary in another shallow bowl. Season the chicken with freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Dip the chicken in the butter and honey mixture, coating each piece well.
Place the chicken on a baking dish and bake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through.
