Chef Jolie Oree-Bailey from Low Country Quisine returns to Good Day to make a family-style dish that can help you teach young children to use table manners and make better food choices.

Buttermilk Pecan Chicken

4 c buttermilk
15 6oz Chicken Breasts

1 c Crushed Pecans
½ tsp Cayenne Pepper

Soak uncooked chicken breasts in buttermilk up to 48 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix dry ingredient together in a medium bowl (Add the 3 cups of flour in a separate bowl). Beat the 6 eggs with ¼ cup cool water.

Dip chicken into flour, egg, then breading, and fry.  Heat the oil to 350 degrees. Fry chicken at least 1 minute on each side.  Next place the chicken on a baking sheet with a rack. 

Place the chicken in a 350-degree oven and allow to finish cooking 12 minutes or until an internal temperature of 165 degrees.
