Maple Pecan Chicken

So very good!

2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts, flattened with a rolling pin
1/2 c maple syurp
1 c chopped pecans
1 c crushed buttery crackers
Salt & Pepper

Cut chicken breasts in half, and place into a gallon-sized resealable bag.  Pour syrup into the bag with the chicken, and close.  Refrigerate at least one hour.

Preheat oven to 400°.  Combine pecans, crackers, salt and pepper in a dish.  Remove chicken from bag, and coat with pecan mixture.  Place onto a baking sheet, and spray with cooking spray.  Bake 10 minutes, turn, then bake 10 minutes more, or until cooked through.

This is good with sweet potatoes, green beans, applesauce, "fried" apples and/or yeast rolls!
