Baked Chicken With Honey and Pecans

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by LilPinkieJ

This is almost like dinner and a dessert in one. It's not quite that sweet, but I love the flavor of the honey and pecans. Sorta like a praline, but not quite. The chicken comes out moist and tender. It's so easy to make too. I like to throw all the seasonings into a ziploc bag, then put the chicken in and shake until coated. Then you can just throw the bag out.

Delicious! I've made this twice now and my family and I absolutely love it. I made it exactly as is both times. My husband walked into the kitchen when the chicken was in the oven baking the first time before I spooned on the pecan sauce and started to complain that he thinks of pecans as a dessert and wasn't crazy about me pouring something sweet over his chicken. Well, when he started eating, he said from now on he will be more open minded. He loved it so much, he kept going back for more. He also took what little leftovers of it there was to work the next day for lunch and was bragging to co-workers about it. Thanks for sharing this great recipe.
