Otherwise known as Heart Attack Chicken
This is a very simple recipe, but the taste is fancy and elegant. For a special occasion, it will wow.
Prepare enough brown rice to serve 4 people
Grease/butter a glass baking pan 9 X 13
Take cream out of the refrigerator and allow to come to room temperature
8 boneless, skinless chicken tenders (I recommend you brine these, as it helps with seasoning, and moistness.)
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1/2 cup finely ground pecans
1/2 cup milk
1 cup cream
Combine chopped and ground pecans in a pie tin or cake pan
combine egg and milk, in a shallow bowl, beat with a fork to blend well
coat chicken tenders in egg wash mixture and then, cover/dredge with pecan mixture
Saute till just lightly golden in skillet with melted butter, keep heat med-low to avoid burning butter, the tenders do not need to be cooked through
as they will be baked also. Handle carefully to keep the coating on.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put cooked rice into greased baking dish, spread evenly
Place sauteed chicken tenders on top of rice
Bake at 350 for 30 min. When there are 10 minutes left, pour cream over everything and return to finish baking.
2 tablespoons Morton’s coarse kosher salt for every 2.5 cups water, .
soak for 1 to 2 hours, in the refrigerator.
