Kim, these little tenders were very good, very tasty. The nut mixture was a very good combination, giving a satisfying crunch. The sauce was simple, but bursting with flavor. I did add some finely chopped green onion to the sauce for an added bit of color and taste. We liked the onion, but you could use chives instead. Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful recipe.
This was awesome! I added panko bread crumbs to give it extra crunch, and the sauce was excellent! This is definately a keeper.
I'm giving this 5 stars because we didn't follow the directions exactly (no sesame seeds on hand) and probably would have added to the flavor. We made a few alterations to this recipe, using potato flakes mixed with pecans (which were amazing!) and dipping chicken in skim milk instead of egg. We also baked the chicken at 400 degrees F for 4 minutes on each side until done instead of frying to make a bit healthier. My favorite part was the toasted pecans and the sauce! My BF even thought the sauce was the best part. I used Polaner's Apricot preserves (all fruit), Frenches regular mustard, wheat-free Tamari (no hoisin sauce), and then 1 T molasses to add sweetness. Amazing sauce!!!! Thank you for this recipe; the pecans and sauce are what make this dish truly great!
These were good, but I definitely needed more of the pecan-sesame mix. I did overcook the chicken, so they were on the dry side, but that's my fault. I will make a double batch of the sauce next time. That's what my husband and I liked the best. Would be good with any chicken tenders and batter fried pork pieces. Thanks for the recipe.
These were easy & a nice change - thanks!!!
Easy and good!
This was really fantastic! I used more chicken so I had to up the amount of pecans and sesame. At one point I ran out of pecans and used walnuts-- seemed to work fine but I prefered the pecan and sesame mix (my boyfriend and neighbor didn't seem to notice the difference). It was delicious. The "breading" allows the chicken to stay juicy and the dipping sauce was easy and delicious. Thanks for posting!
These were very tasty - the dipping sauce was very easy and went well with the chicken. Thanks for posting!
I ended up making these for you Football pool win. Made them for watching football of course and had great compliments. Very tasty. Will become a favorite here. Congrats on your win, sorry it took me so long to review a recipe. (and I still plan on making those taco cookies, just need some time)
These were a big hit here. Everyone loved the dipping sauce (especially me). They were quick and easy to make and we loved the crunch from the sesame and pecans. Another keeper!!
