Delicious! Served this twice back to back for company to rave reviews! The grapes were the perfect touch! The buttermilk keeps the chicken moist and the pecans give it a uniquely nutty taste that's sure to impress!

Easy to make! The chicken stays moist and the pecans are amazing after they are baked! My husband is NOT a chicken fan but he loved this! Thanks Paula!
