Ginny Larkin


2 tbl. orange marmalade
2 tbl. pure maple syrup
1 cup finely chopped pecans
3 tbl. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
4 skinless boneless chicken breasts (1 1/4 lb. total)
2 tbl. olive oil
1 tbl. butter

In a small bowl, stir together orange marmalade and maple syrup; set aside.
In a shallow dish combine the pecans, flour and salt. Brush marinade mixture onto both sides of chicken breast halves.
Dip into pecan mixture to coat, pressing mixture into chicken, if necessary.
In a 12-inch skillet, heat oil and butter over medium heat until butter melts and the mixture begins to bubble.
Add chicken and cook for 6 minutes. Turn chicken and cook for 6-9 minutes or more until golden brown and no longer pink in center.
Watch closely and reduce heat if chicken browns too quickly.
