This recipe is from one of my favorite cookbooks – Southern Living Homestyle Cooking. I’ve made several of recipes from this cookbook, and they are all delicious! This recipe is no exception. This is one of our “go-to” weeknight meals. The chicken is so flavorful and crispy. The original recipe uses chicken breasts, but I like to use chicken tenders since they cook quicker. This chicken only takes minutes to put together, and the end result looks like you went to a lot of trouble. Let’s just let that be out little secret!
Crunchy Pecan Chicken Tenders
- 1 cup Bisquick
- ½ cup finely chopped pecans (I used my food processor)
- 1 tsp paprika
- ½ tsp salt
- 1 tsp Creole seasoning
- 2 lbs chicken tenders
- ½ cup buttermilk
- ¼ cup unsalted butter, melted
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; stir well. Dip chicken in buttermilk, dredge in pecan mixture. Place chicken in an ungreased 9×13-inch pan. Drizzle butter over chicken. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until chicken is done.
