The original recipe used toasted almonds. I love almonds, but I didn't have any on hand. I used toasted pecans and it was great. This only takes about 20 minutes to make. I served the chicken over some Uncle Ben's Ready Rice - I love that it is ready in 90 seconds in the microwave! Make this tonight. Trust me - everyone will love it!
