Pecan-crusted buttermilk chicken
Smartpoints value per serving
This chicken recipe has it all! It's got a crunchy coating of finely chopped pecans and breadcrumbs as well as a moist and tender interior thanks to a good soak in low-fat buttermilk. You'll also love the addition of Cajun seasoning that combines a lot of different tasty spices into one. For the best results, be sure to use a well-seasoned cast-iron skillet. Heat up the oil and cook the chicken until the coating is golden and crunchy, which should take only just 5 minutes total. Then transfer it all to the oven to cook it all the way through, which takes only 10 more minutes. Serve with mixed greens or blanched veggies alongside to complete the meal.
