    In addittion to my last comment. Parchment paper is key if you want crispy on the bottom, I have made this several times I love it! - 8/23/09

    This reminded me of the pecan-crusted chicken that's in all the chain-restaurant salads these days, so that's what I did. Served on a mix of romaine and spinach with dried cherries...yum. Kids liked it too, but plain. - 5/14/08

    I liked this and so did my hubby. I did make a few changes though...I added a few herbs and spices to the nut mixture, omitted the bread crumbs and just put the nut mixture on top of the chicken to keep it from getting mushy. The serving size needs adjusting, 6 servings for 1lb is a stretch. - 6/13/08
