This recipe was awesome! My family didn't even realize that there were nuts in this. They all loved the crunchy texture and full flavor of the breading. We will definitely be saving this recipe as one of our favorites for chicken!

Delicious! My family really enjoyed this chicken! I skipped the orange zest, and used the Sunkist Almond Accents in place of the pecans. I also used olive oil in place of canola. The chicken pieces fried up very nicely and the texture was great!
