Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease a large baking sheet.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, combine pecans, breadcrumbs and 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning. In another bowl, beat eggs, olive oil and remaining 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning.
  3. One at a time, dredge the chicken pieces in the egg mixture, then in the pecan mixture and gently shake off excess coating. Place each piece of chicken gently on the baking sheet, leaving a bit of space between.
  4. Bake, turning once, for about 15-20 minutes or until golden and crunchy.
  5. While chicken is baking, whisk together sauce ingredients. Serve as dipping sauce for the chicken.
