    PaulaG's Note:

    We recently took a trip to Hotel Limpia in Ft. Davis, TX. They had this wonderful cookbook of hotel favorites and this recipe was included. This is a hotel favorite that is occasionally served as a dinner special. Simple but elegant. The chicken can be cut into strips and prepared as directed and served as an appetizer with honey mustard or ranch dressing for dipping.

      Loved it! I made this last night with two substitutions. Turns out I didn't have any pecans so I used walnuts. And to make it healthier, I left out the egg and the butter, spraying the breaded chicken with pam so it would brown up nicely. It was delicious even with the substitutions. I'll definitely be trying it again after I buy some pecans :)

      Absolutely fabulous chicken! I scaled this recipe in half and followed exactly as written. The result was a moist and juicy chicken dish with lots of flavour. We all enjoyed this for dinner tonight, I highly recommend this recipe! Made for Aussie Swap :)

      We enjoyed this chicken dish a lot. I used chicken breast tenders, a and scaled back the dipping and breading mixtures for the two of us. I skipped the melted butter, and ended up baking them at 400 because I was cooking something else at the time, and they browned nicely. This is nice for a quick yet tasty weeknight meal. Thanks!
