Pecan Chicken Tender Salad (like O’Charley's)
for chicken tenders

2 lb chicken tenders
salt and pepper
1 c flour
2 eggs, beaten with 1 TBSP milk
1 c plain dry bread crumbs
1 c pecans, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1 TBSP orange juice
vegetable oil, for frying

for honey roasted pecans
2 TBSP honey
1/2 tsp salt
1 c pecan halves or pieces

for salad
10 c romaine lettuce, torn into bite sized pieces
small can mandarin orange slices, drained
1/4 c crumbled bleu cheese
1/4 c dried cranberries
balsamic vinaigrette

for chicken tenders

Season chicken tenders with salt and pepper. Set out three dishes. In the first dish, place the flour. In the second, eggs beaten with milk. In the third dish, combine bread crumbs, ground pecans, nutmeg and orange juice. Coat tenders in flour, then egg, then pecan mixture. Place tenders on a plate to reserve for frying. Fry in batches in skillet in 1" of oil 3 to 3 1/2 minutes per side. (I use a deep fryer and cook 6 to 7 min at 350 degrees.) Drain on paper towels.

for honey roasted pecans
Stir together honey and salt. Add pecans and stir to coat well. Spread pecans in single layer in shallow baking pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 350 degrees. Then stir pecans and bake for 3 to 5 min. more. Quickly, transfer to sheet of wax paper to cool. While pecans are still warm, separate them with a fork and chop when cool.

for salad
In 4 separate salad bowls, mix together all ingredients except tenders and dressing. For each serving toss together 2 1/2 c of lettuce, 1 TBSP crumbled bleu cheese, 1 TBSP dried cranberries, 2 TBSP chopped honey roasted pecans, 1/4 can mandarin orange slices cut in half. Place tenders on top of salad. Drizzle dressing on salads at the table.

4 servings
