      This was so delicious, I can't say enough things about it. I loved the pecan breading, and the pecan maple sauce drizzled on top really finished off the dish quite nicely. It was super delicious and a real treat for us. This is one of those dishes to keep in mind for those evenings when you have dinner guests--they'll be impressed, not to mentioned satisfied and begging for your recipe. Thanks for sharing your recipe, evelyn/athens. Made for 2014 Culinary Quest. Yum!

      I cant rate this high enough!! This was a step out of my comfort zone, I like to cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces before cooking, goes further and easier to eat. I could see that this wouldnt work in this recipe, though, so I went as directed and SO glad that I did!!!! These chicken fillets were so tender and flavourful and the nutty crust is to die for. We did enjoy the accompanying sauce, but the chicken stands so well alone, in my book. I made the full recipe, for the two of us, thinking I would then use the chicken in another dish, but it is so TASTY, that I said to my husband, right, slice these, and they will be my office lunch for the next few days --- lovely bread, fresh rocket, a little mustard -- I am not generally a sandwich person but I am LOVING my lunches!!!! definitely a make-again, thank you Evelyn, this was made and enjoyed for International Agents of QUEST, USA Southern Region
