Honey Pecan Chicken aka "faux fried chicken"

Last night we had honey pecan chicken from Cooking Light. We first had this recipe for Valentine's day our junior year at Vandy, but we have had it several times since because we both really like it. I served it with sweet potatoes and broccoli.


1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 lb chicken breast tenders
1/4 cup honey
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
3/4 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/4 cups finely crushed cornflakes (about 4 cups uncrushed cereal)
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
Cooking spray


Preheat oven to 400°.
Sprinkle salt and pepper evenly over chicken; set aside. Combine honey, mustard, paprika, and garlic powder in a small bowl; stir well. Combine cornflakes and pecans in a shallow dish; stir well. Brush both sides of chicken with honey mixture; dredge in cornflake mixture.
Place chicken pieces on a large baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat chicken with cooking spray, and bake at 400° for 30-35 minutes or until done.
