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.

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.
