With all that being said, it took me a long time to finally decide on a recipe to share for such a wonderful blog, because I wanted it to be JUST right.  Well boys and girls, we knocked this one OUT OF THE PARK!   Dare I say, this may be my favorite chicken dish I have made so far? And we eat a LOT of chicken!  If you like sweet sauces on your chicken, give this one a try!!! 


For the chicken breasts
1/4 cup pecans, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons white pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder (granules)
1 1/2 cups buttermilk
1 1/2 cups gluten free plain flour (all-purpose)
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
4 chicken breasts, boneless and skinless and 1/2 inch thick
