(NC) - Nothing symbolizes Southern cooking quite like buttermilk-marinated chicken - and in Alabama, Southern cooking also includes pecans, as most everyone has a pecan tree in their back yard. The addition of ground pecans to this tender chicken adds a nutty flavour and a crispy crust.
Pound chicken breasts between wax paper until 1/2 inch (2.5 cm) thick.
In medium bowl combine buttermilk and mustard. Pour into a sealable plastic bag, add chicken breasts and shake until well coated. Refrigerate for at least one hour (or overnight).
Preheat oven to 375 F (180 C). Place ground pecans in shallow bowl. Season chicken with salt and pepper and add to pecans, gently pressing to form a crust on all sides.
In large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, heat oil and brown chicken on all sides until golden. Transfer to preheated oven and bake until juices run clear, about 10 to 12 minutes. Serve immediately.
