Ready In:




  • In food processor (or can finely chop with knife) chop pecans; add flour and salt.
  • Dip chicken cutlets in beaten egg, then in flour/pecan mixture, coating well.
  • Combine raspberry preserves, honey, and vinegar in small sauce pan. Heat until warm and combined.
  • Pan fry chicken in small drizzle of olive oil on medium heat until browned on both sides. (With cutlets this will take a very small amount of time. If using larger breasts, adjust cooking time.).
  • Drizzle warmed sauce over chicken to serve.

  1. Very close to a dish I had at my favorite restaurant! When making the pecan and flour mixture I added more pecans as it didnt look like enough for the coating. The raspberry sauce was good but for our taste buds I think I would either add less honey or increase the balsamic vinegar. Thank you for a quick and very nice dinner. Good Luck in the contest!
  2. Simple, easy and very tasty. We enjoyed this chicken very much. Next time (personal preference here) I will use more pecans and a little less flour to dredge the chicken breasts. The raspberry sauce was a lovely touch. Thanks!
  3. Great recipe. I used 1 1/2 times the pecan mixture for 6 cutlets and barely had enough. But, had more than enough raspberry sauce. I used only a drizzle of raspberry sauce so as to not drown the cutlets in sweetness, and that was perfect.
  4. I compared this recipe with #282931, making them at the same time. Some people liked this one because it was sweeter than the other recipe. This one was pan fried. Both recipes were very good and there was not a clear winner. Thanks for a great recipe! Made for RSC #11.
  5. This was pretty good. But maybe a little too sweet. Some in my family loved the sauce but thought it was too much with the pecans. They preferred the chicken without the sauce. Still, a very tasty and beautiful dish!!! Good job!
