Honey Pecan Glazed Chicken

This meal is so easy and quick it almost doesn't deserve to be call a recipe. I routinely throw this together on weeknights when I forgot to think about dinner until 4 o'clock and I need something I can get on the table in a jiffy. From start to finish this takes less than 30 minutes (that is with chopping your own pecans).

Honey Pecan Glazed Chicken
1 lb. of boneless skinless chicken tenders (or breast that are sliced or pounded out)
6 tbl. of honey
6 tbl. of chopped pecans
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/4-1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper (the sweet and spicy makes this dish but you can eliminate/reduce cayenne on some of the chicken to make it more kid friendly).
2 tbl. Butter

Mix salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne together. Season chicken breasts liberally.

Melt butter in pan over medium heat- add chicken and cook 5-6 minutes (or until almost cooked through).

Remove chicken from pan and set aside. Add honey and pecans to pan (with pan juices) and cook 5 minutes (your honey needs to come to a boil to really meld with all the pan juices and pecans).

Return chicken to pan, cover, and cook an additional 3 minutes (or until cooked through).
