This is a really 5 stars recipe, amazing good and really special and I really recommend it!

I prepared this for two persons, but I made the full amount of sauce as I needed it for the asparagus which I served with the chicken.

To make the sauce lighter and for personal taste I reduced the amount of sugar and butter used for the sauce, but I’m sure that the original recipe is not less good!

Will make this again!



  • 1/2 cup pecan nuts (finely chopped, make sure the pieces are small)
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs (dry, seasoned)
