Pecan Chicken with Lemon Herb Butter Recipe

Preparation time: 25 minutes. Serves 2.


2 chicken breasts, tenderized

3/4 cup Japanese bread crumbs (“Panko” in grocery stores. It is useful for many great seafood and chicken dishes.)

1/2 cup pecan pieces, chopped in food processor

Capers to taste (optional)

2 eggs, beaten


Tenderize chicken breasts and flatten slightly with a meat mallet so they are not too thick but even in thickness

Combine Panko bread crumbs and Pecan pieces in a shallow pan (like a pie pan). Put beaten eggs in another pie pan and the flour in a third pie pan

Dip the chicken in the flour, then in the eggs, and finally in the Pecan-Panko mix

Heat a large skillet or sauté pan over medium heat

Add clarified butter and then the two breasts

Cook chicken on one side for 3-4 minutes (or until golden brown), turn over, and cook until juices run clear

Chicken is done. Top each breast with lemon-herb butter

Fresh Lemon Herb Butter 


1 pound soft butter

1 1/2 lemons, zested and juiced

1 tablespoon fresh thyme

2 teaspoons fresh parsley, chopped (or 3/4 teaspoon dried parsley)


Combine all ingredients in a food processor or with a mixer
