Tanya's Tasty Tips: Meal Makeover (Crispy Pecan Chicken)

Who hasn't had a craving for a big bucket of fried chicken? The satisfaction of licking your fingers and wiping the grease all over your clothing is surprisingly satisfying. It tastes so good, but unfortunately, one piece can pack in close to 500 calories and 28g of fat.

I have come up with a healthy alternative that is sure to satisfy your crispy craving. The nutty coating on this chicken makes it pleasing and mouth-watering. Who needs greasy fried chicken when you have this crusty, crunchy dish?
