This taste good! Love the pecans in it. The pecans were dark already but the insides were still a bit raw/. Will just use more oil and cut out on the mustard next time. Thanks!

Two of my daughters and I really enjoyed this but my husband and third daughter were "it's ok." It's hard to please a family of 5! I used chicken tenders; I always have a hard time with chicken getting cooked thoroughly on the stovetop without burning the outside so I did finish this in the oven. Maybe it's my pan. I served this with Green Beans Caesar, Delicious Cowboy Biscuits, and Thai Coconut Rice. Quite the meal!

This is an awesome chicken recipe. I finely ground my pecans and only used about 1 T of the Dijon mustard. It was so good and my family loved this. I served it with "Awesome Green Beans". Delish!
