Number of Servings: 6


    3 - 4 lb split chicken breasts

    (I'm trying this recipe with 6 boneless chicken breasts...using split chicken breasts will change the nutritional value indicated for the recipe)

    Basting sauce:

    1/4 cup butter or margarine
    2 T. lemon juice
    2 T. water
    1/2 t. Worcestershire sauce
    salt and pepper

    Honey-Pecan Sauce:

    3 T. honey
    2 T. butter or margarine, melted
    2 T. chopped pecans, toasted
    2 t. lemon juice


Prepare Honey Pecan Sauce by mixing all ingredients together. ***PLEASE SEE REVISIONS AT THE BOTTOM!!

Spray bottom of a 9x13 baking dish with vegetable oil. Preheat oven to 275°F. Mix all basting sauce ingredients together in a small saucepan. Cook over low heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Place chicken in baking dish, skin sides up, and mop or brush basting sauce over chicken. Bake chicken 25 to 35 minutes; mop with basting sauce. Cover and bake 35 to 45 minutes longer, mopping 2 or 3 times with basting sauce until juices are clear. Discard any remaining basting sauce.

******I personally thought this recipe was horrible!! The chicken turned out great, but the honey pecan topping sauce wasn't very good at all. Instead, I would bake the chicken as directed, then drizzle with a couple of tablespoons of honey and a sprinkling of pecans. DO NOT make the sauce with the butter and the lemon. Ewwwww ewwww ewwww!!**********

Serve chicken with Honey-Pecan Sauce.
