Preheat oven to 425°F. Spread chocolate chips in pie shell; sprinkle pecans on top.
Whisk together eggs, sugar, corn syrup, whiskey, vanilla and salt. Pour over nuts. Bake for 20 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350°F and bake about 35 minutes more, until pie is set but slightly wobbly in center. Let cool completely before serving.
