  1. With a mallet, pound each chicken breast until very flat. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together honey, egg, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt, pepper and onion powder.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine breadcrumbs and pecans. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Dip each chicken breast in the honey mixture, coating both sides. Repeat this process in the breadcrumb mixture, coating evenly. Fry chicken in the hot skillet until no longer pink, about 5 to 7 minutes on each side. Serve hot with parsley on top.


  1. This is excellent! I always have boneless/skinless chicken breasts on hand, and I had all the other ingredients, so, because it looked and sounded good, I tried it. Wow, the flavors just made the chicken out of this world good! I made the recipe exactly as listed, and I wouldn’t change a thing!

  2. Great recipe! I made this tonight and my husband mmm’d from first bite to the last bite. Made it exactly as it was written and no substitutions. Thank you!
