Buttermilk Pecan Chicken
A nice crunchy baked chicken that's good if you are craving fried chicken. You can substitute almonds for pecans if you prefer.
||Grind up pecans (or almonds) in a coffee grinder or blender. Grind enough to have 2/3 cup for coating the chicken.
||In a shallow bowl combine the ground pecans, paprika, salt and pepper.
||Place flour and buttermilk in separate bowls.
||Coat chicken with flour then dip in buttermilk and last coat with the pecan mixture.
||Spray a 13" x 9" x 2" baking dish with cooking spray like Pam. Place the chicken once it's been coated in the prepared baking dish.
||Bake uncovered at 375 °F (190 °C) for 35 to 40 minutes or until juices run clear and chicken is browned and crispy.
