This pecan crusted chicken is crispy, crunchy and satisfying. It’s best used as an entreé, but you can cut each thigh into pieces and put the pieces on skewers to make an appetizer.
The recipe calls for chicken thighs because they are the juiciest. But you can also use breast meat if that’s what you have available.
Because of the herbs in the pecan crusted chicken dish, we think it would pair nicely with a rosé.
Our rosé wine suggestions:
- Rosé d’Anjou
- Rhone Rosé
- White Zinfandel
- Rosé of Cabernet
