My husband and parent's both thought this was a very good recipe. I was able to find the spicy chipotle spice at Walmart and followed the recipe and it worked out great. I like the slight spiciness and citrus taste that the pecan breading then had. Very good and will make again, soon.
This recipe coats tender chicken breasts with a buttery pecans flavored with spicy chipotle and zesty orange. Serve with a spinach salad.

I made this last night and thought it was terrific, many thanks for the recipe
My husband said this was one of the best chicken dishes he's had. Ever. This means a lot because we have a habit of eating out in very good restaurants far too often. I will make this again and again. So easy too.
This was an excellent chicken dish - chicken is my favorite thing to make, so I am always looking for different recipes. To be honest, I completely forgot about the orange zest so I did not add any, and it still was delicious. I really did not think it was spicy, but I used chili powder instead so that could have been the issue. Either way, it was so good, and the pecans were a nice touch

This was *really* good! My husband devoured it. I had to go to a specialty store for the ground chipotle, but it was worth it. The recipe was easy and I'll be making it again for sure.
