Delish! The best way to get any "crust" to stick is to flour the chicken/fish-whatever first, then dip into your liquid mix (eggs, dressing, etc), then coat with nuts/breading or whatever. The flouring first is the trick.
This salad is delicious! I found a way to keep your pecans on the chicken. I pounded the pecans so that they crumbled more. This helped them adhere much better. Only a few fell off from the bottom when baking. Also definately use basalmic vinegar dressing-the flavor is awesome with all the other ingrediants!!Hope this helps!!
Delicous! My favorite salad is Pecan Crusted Chicken Salad from TGIFs. Had one last night for supper. Made this for lunch and it was very similar. I also am not sure what creamy garlic salad dressing is so I used garlic ranch to coat the chicken. I also used chicken tenders and baked at 350 for about 20 minutes. Substituted original Craisins for the cranberries. Served with a balsamic vinaigrette dressing. My husband is not a fan of blue cheese and complained when I added but he rated the recipe a 5 and even admitted to me the mandarin oranges craisins & blue cheese compliment each other along with the balsamic vinaigrette. (Served with TGIFs salad.) Next time I will chill the chicken in the fridge for about a half hour after I have the dressing and nuts on the chicken and then bake. It will hold the nuts better. Thanks
Positively delish! I made enough for 4 and my husband and I happily finished it off by ourselves. My personal notes: -It's just as good with Ranch dressing as without. -Creamy Ceasar dressing works great since I didn't really know what garlic dressing was being an amateur and all. -Even if you hate bleu cheese just try a little. My husband loved it and he can't stand bleu cheese. -Next time I'm going to put the chopped lettuce in a colander and drain the juice from the oranges over it. I just think it will give the lettuce an extra kick. Thanks for the recipe!
Tried this recipe for the first time last night and it was a big hit! Very light and refreshing. The mandarin oranges add just a hint of sweetness without being overpowering. I didn't even add the ranch dressing as the natural flavor was wonderful.
This was a very good salad. However next time I would either add Craisins or skip the cranberries altogether because they made it a little too sour. Also I think a vinaigrette type dressing would have been better than the ranch. But we really liked it and the chicken came out very good. Also we added candied walnuts and those really improved the salad as well.
I used the pecan crusted portion of this recipe the other night it was DELISH. I added an egg to the dressing as I was skitish about the stick of the pecans and all was well. Thanks for an easy and delicious suggestion.
