Foodie Friday: Honey Pecan Chicken

Monday we celebrated Travis’ last birthday in his 20’s! I know, he’s getting old, right? 
For his birthday dinner he requested Honey Pecan Chicken. 

We first tasted this sweet goodness a few months back when I was just a week away from having Summer and my parents brought us dinner. My mom had made this and we thought it was delicious. I figured it was hard to make, so I never even tried it! If you’ve been with me for a while you’ll know that a couple of years ago I said I was no longer going to let recipes intimidate me! So when Travis asked for this, I just called my mom for the recipe! 
Cut 2 or 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts into about 8-10 pieces.
soak in 2 c. of milk and 1/2 tsp. vinegar for 1 1/2 hours. 
Mix:
1 c. flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1 tsp. salt
in a bowl, set aside.
Take chicken out of milk and roll in flour. Let rest for 20 minutes.
Heat pan with about a 1/2 inch of oil to brown each side of your chicken pieces. Place in greased oven safe dish. 
Meanwhile heat
1 c. butter
1/2 c. honey
until mixed. 
Then add 1/2 cup chopped pecans.
Stir until thick.
Pour over chicken
Cook for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
Easy peasy and super delicious! Now go make this for dinner!
