Pecan-Crusted Chicken in Honey-Mustard Sauce

I made this dish on Sunday night. I got it off of Kraft Foods. I made some alterations after looking at suggestions from others and it turned out FANTASTIC! It will be one of our new dishes. The dipping sauce is what makes this so yummy. You can click HERE to see the original recipe, but what I ended up doing to prepare it is below. You have got to try this, it was SO good!

Pecan Crusted Chicken
slightly adapted from Kraft Foods

1 pkt. SHAKE 'N BAKE Extra Crispy Seasoned Coating Mix
1 cup finely chopped Pecans
1 egg
2 Tbsp. water
flour (for dipping)
4-5 boneless skinless chicken breast halves cut into strips
Cayenne pepper to taste

Dipping Sauce:
1/3 cup mayo
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
1 TBSP honey
1 TBSP horseradish sauce
*try some brown spicy mustard too, it's even better!

PREHEAT oven to 400°F. Mix coating mix and pecans in shallow dish (add the Cayenne pepper at this point if your going to use it); set aside. Beat egg with water in separate shallow dish. Dip chicken in flour, then egg mixture, then in pecan mixture, turning to evenly coat both sides. Place on foil-covered baking sheet.
BAKE 15 to 18 min. or until chicken is cooked through.
MEANWHILE, mix all ingredients for sauce together. Serve chicken with sauce on the side.

Dip chicken in flour.

then the egg mixture

and then coat in the pecan mixture.

Place on a baking sheet with foil sprayed with cooking spray and bake at 400 for 15-18 minutes until cooked through.

serve cooked chicken with dipping sauce on the side.
