I am a bad, bad person and am stealing this recipe from Sarah Cool. I just want to have it in a place I can easily find it because I like to make it all the time. It is so delicious! I did change it up a little to fit our tastes.

2 eggs
1/2 cup honey
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 cup dry bread crumbs
Mrs. Dash and pepper to taste
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
1/3 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a bowl, beat eggs and honey together until well blended.
In a separate bowl, toss together pecans, bread crumbs, Mrs. Dash and pepper.
Dip chicken breasts in egg and honey mixture, and then roll in pecan mixture, coating thoroughly. Press pecan mixture onto chicken breast if it falls off.
Arrange chicken side by side in a buttered baking dish.
Drizzle melted butter evenly over chicken.
Bake for 45 minutes, until chicken is no longer pink. (You may want to cover it the first 30 minutes)
