Ingredients
  • 2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

Directions
  • Place each chicken breast between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and gently flatten with a meat mallet or heavy flat object to an even 1/3-inch thick.

  • In a shallow bowl add the chicken and the buttermilk. Cover and marinate for 1 hour in the refrigerator.

  • In a food processor, pulse pecans until finely ground. Transfer the pecans to a large rimmed dish and add the panko bread crumbs. Mix to combine well.

  • Remove marinated chicken breasts from buttermilk and shake off excess. Dip chicken in breading mixture, evenly coating both sides.

  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil. Add breaded breasts and shallow fry about 4 to 5 minutes on each side until golden in color. Remove from oil to and drain on paper towels. Immediately season with salt and pepper and place on a serving platter of individual dishes.

  • Serve it with a yummy salad for a super tasty meal. Enjoy!
