Honey Pecan Chicken

Every summer, thousands of women attend the Lottie’s Kitchen event in Deal, NJ, a fundraiser for Ezer Mitzion in Israel. The event features food demonstrations back-to back throughout the day. A version of this chicken was demonstrated by Lisa Melamed. It’s become my family’s favorite—moist and sweet, without the need to fry.


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4 servings (mom even gets her own)


  • 1½ pound boneless chicken breasts, cut into nuggets
  • ½ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2½ cups breadcrumbs
  • 1½ cup pecans
  • Salt, black pepper, and garlic powder to taste


Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease a baking sheet or broiler pan.
In a bowl, combine the mayonnaise and honey. Set aside.
In a food processor, pulse the pecans 1 or 2 times. Combine the bread crumbs, pecans, and seasoning in a second bowl.
Dredge chicken nuggets in mayonnaise-honey mixture. Coat with bread crumb-pecan mixture. Remove nuggets to prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes on each side.

    Could this be made with whole cutlets? How long would you think those would bake for?

    Just made these. I liked what I tasted. I hope the kiddos do too!
