Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders

Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders

bag of pecansNow this is the kind of present I LOVE! My folks brought back three bags of fresh pecans from a recent trip they took to Biloxi, Mississippi.

I already had some chicken defrosting in my refrigerator, so I decided to make some Pecan Crusted Chicken Tenders. My girls wanted some honey mustard sauce with theirs. This was just a quick 1:1 ratio of yellow mustard and honey with a small splash of apple cider vinegar. For my husband and I, I made a spinach salad and put these on top. I love nuts in my salads, so this was perfect!
