Total Time

Prep: 10 min. Bake: 1 hour


4 servings

This recipe combines two Southern classics—chicken and pecans. Although this chicken is baked in the oven, the rich nutty mixture gives it a fabulous fried flair.


  • 1-1/2 cups buttermilk baking mix
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 broiler/fryer chicken (3-1/2 to 4 pounds), cut up
  • 1 can (5 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted


  1. In a shallow bowl or large resealable plastic bag, combine baking mix, pecans, paprika, salt, pepper and poultry seasoning. Dip chicken pieces in milk, then coat generously with pecan mixture.
  2. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Drizzle with butter. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until juices run clear.
