Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Pecan-Crusted Chicken

16 oz (4 Chicken Breasts) chicken breasts
1/2 cups pecan halves
1/4 cups plain breadcrumbs
1 1/2 teaspoons freshly grated orange zest
1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoons chipotle pepper
1 large egg white
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoons canola oil

Recipe Directions for Spicy Pecan-Crusted Chicken

  1. Working with one piece of chicken at a time, place between sheets of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet or heavy skillet until flattened to an even 1/4-inch thickness.

  2. Place pecans, breadcrumbs, orange zest, salt and ground chipotle in a food processor and pulse until the pecans are finely ground. Transfer the mixture to a shallow dish. Whisk egg white and water in a shallow dish until combined. Dip each chicken breast in the egg white mixture, then dredge both sides in the pecan mixture.

  3. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add half the chicken and cook until browned on the outside and no longer pink in the middle, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm. Carefully wipe out the pan with a paper towel and add the remaining oil.

  4. Cook the remaining chicken, adjusting the heat as needed to prevent scorching. Serve immediately.
