Ingredients:  
1 c. chopped pecans
1/2 c. chopped fresh parsley (preferably Italian flat leaf)
1-2 cloves of minced garlic
grated zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme
approximately 1/4 c. of olive oil
6 boneless and skinless chicken breasts or thighs
salt and pepper to taste

Directions:
Directions:
Preheat ovento 375F. Combine the first 6 ingredients. Add enough olive oil to moisten and help hold the mixture together. Arrange chicken in a baking dish and brush a little olive oil into each piece. Pat pecan mixture onto the chicken pieces. Bake for 20-30 minutes or until chicken is done.

Note: The original recipe called for 1 tbsp. of dried basil, but I think the fresh thyme is better. Other herbs such as marjoram or savory are also good. It is good even if you leave the herb out as long as you keep the parsley.
