Pecan Crusted Dijon Chicken


  • 4 chicken breasts – flattened
  • 4 T . butter , divided
  • 5 T . dijon mustard , divided
  • 1 c . pecans , chopped finely
  • 1 T . olive oil
  • 2/3 c . sour cream
  • salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  1. Flatten chicken breasts between wax paper with a meat pounder and season with salt and pepper.
  2. Melt 3 T. butter and whisk in 3 T. dijon mustard.
  3. Dip chicken into butter/dijon mustard and then into chopped pecans.
  4. Add 1 T. oil and 1 T. butter to nonstick pan and heat pan on medium.
  5. Saute chicken approximately 3 minutes per side and then place in greased 13×9 inch pan (this will need to be done in batches–wipe pan out in between batches so that pecans don’t burn).
