 16 oz skinless, boneless chicken breasts or tenders
 1 cup Green Valley Pecan Meal
 1 cup Green Valley Pecan Pieces
 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
 1 tsp Salt
 ½ tsp black pepper
 ½ tsp paprika
 2 Eggs
1

Set out 3 medium size bowls. Set aside. Preheat oven to 400F degrees. Line a large baking sheet with a silicone baking mat/parchment paper or coat heavily with nonstick spray. Set aside.

2

Use 1st bowl to mix the pecan crumbs with flour, salt, pepper, and paprika.

3

In 2nd bowl beat the 2 eggs.

4

In 3rd bowl, place small pieces.

5

Coat each chicken strip in the flour/ground pecan mixture, shaking off any excess. Then, dip in egg and let any excess drip off. Then, generously roll in the coarsely chopped pecans, shaking off any excess. Place the chicken strips on the prepared baking sheet.

6

Bake for 10 minutes. Turn each piece over and continue baking until the outside is crisp and the centers are cooked through, about 10 minutes more. Baking times may vary, just make sure yours are cooked through. If you like them more brown, bake longer. Careful, you don't want to burn the nuts.
