We used Trader Joes almond meal, as we did not have pecans, but other than that, used the recipe. We served with sweet potato fries and salad. Kids, and hubby loved em'.

Turned out horrible and bland.

As another reviewer mentioned the coating was very soft, even though I sprayed them before baking, which usually helps crisp up "oven fried" foods. It really wasn't that flavorful and I ended up wishing I would've just ate the pecans by themselves...I love pecans!

Not very flavorful at all, even with addition of cayenne pepper to breading. The breading turned out soft, not crispy at you would expect. I don't think I'll make this one again.

I made this recipe using full size chicken breasts that I pounded until thin. It was quite good; however, my husband and I thought it needed a little more kick. I plan to add just a touch of cayenne pepper next time to spice it up.
