Honey Pecan Chicken

My dear friend Jen told me about a chicken recipe that she tried the other night, wondering if I could make it gluten free.  Seemed easy enough.  And it was… as well as delicious!  The prep work took me less than 10 minutes, so it is perfect for a busy weeknight meal that you want to taste homemade.  Thanks, Jen!

Honey Pecan Chicken


  1. 3-4 boneless chicken thighs (you could also use breasts)
  2. one cup raw pecans
  3. one half cup cornmeal
  4. 2 tsp. chili powder
  5. 4 tbsp. honey
  6. pinch of salt and pepper


  1. In a food processor or mini chop, combine the pecans, cornmeal, chili powder, and salt and pepper.  Finely chop.  Put mixture into a bowl.
  2. Coat both sides of the chicken with 3 tbsp. of honey and then coat the chicken on both sides again with the pecan, cornmeal, and chili mixture.
  3. Place coated chicken in a sprayed cooking pan and drizzle the last 1 tbsp. of honey evenly over the chicken.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, until chicken is done.
  5. Enjoy hot!
