Praline Chicken

I’ve had this recipe on my list of things to make for some time. I finally got around to making it and it was delicious! Chicken Legs took one bite and starting raving about it. He especially loved the praline topping. I loved that this chicken didn’t take any prep work. I just seasoned it and sautéed it in the skillet. It took less than 30 minutes from start to finish. We served this over some white and wild rice, but next time I am going to serve it over some sweet potatoes.

  1. This looks so easy! I've only had pecan chicken once (in the hospital post-partum – and it was amazing), but I might have to try making it myself now.
