Fried Parmesan fish or chicken

I thought this recipe up while eating breakfast one morning.
I have lots of pecans in my freezer, so I wanted to put some to use ,
applying them in an Atkins friendly recipe.
So here it is:

1 cup ground pecans
1 cup parmasan cheese (grated)
1 egg (wisked)
olive oil & butter for frying
fish or chicken tenders

I ground the pecans in my blender, it only takes a second or 2.
mix that with parmasan cheese, set aside.
wisk egg in bowl by it's self.
have your oil & butter heating in a non stick fry pan, about 2 tablespoons of each.
dip your fish or chicken in egg,
then dip into the pecan/cheese mixture.
place gently into the hot oils, fry about 3-4 minutes on each side.
The chicken may take a little longer.
Cook on medium high heat,
you want it to sizzle but not burn!!
No salt is needed really, the cheese adds that flavor.

If you are doing chicken:
I like to flatten my tenders out:
I do 2 at a time.
using a large piece of plastic wrap, lay it across your cutting board, put 2 pieces of chicken tenders side by side on top, then fold the plastic wrap over the top of it. I use a wooden mallet
and beat the chicken until almost flat.
By using the plastic wrap, it keeps you from slinging the chicken juice and tiny pieces all over your kitchen!!!
I wipe every thing down with a water/clorox mix when done.
we do not what ecoli growing in your kitchen!!!


  1. the picture is fish filets cut in half. they were awesome too! whish you could all sample them.

  2. your making me hungry! and i just ate:)

  3. the top left is chicken tenders, the right is fish. both yummy. you can do this without the pecans, just use egg wash and Parmesan cheese.
    I was just trying to use up some of my pecans we picked up in our yard and I shelled last fall.

  4. Hi Joan. I was wondering if you could bake these in the oven if you melted a couple tablespoons of butter in the bottom of your pan. Like oven"fried" chicken? It would be even healthier yet.
