Ingredients- Serves 2
-1 tablespoon EVOO
-2 chicken breasts cut into tenders (or you can just buy tenderloins but I had chicken breasts in the freezer)
-1/4 cup maple syrup
-1/4 cup sweet BBQ sauce
-1/3 cup finely crushed pecans
-1 navel orange (you'll use the zest and the juice)-Salt & Pepper to taste
1. In a frying pan over medium-high heat, heat the EVOO. Place tenders in pan and season with salt & pepper. Cook tenders 3-4 minutes (or until no longer pink) per side flipping once.
2. In a bowl, mix the maple syrup and BBQ sauce. Zest the orange and stir in the zest. Juice the orange and stir into the mixture.
3. When tenders are finished, remove from pan and clean pan of any oil. Over medium heat, add in the BBQ sauce mixture, add tenders. Simmer 5 minutes. Serve immediately and top with crushed pecans.
