Praline Chicken Recipe

Sweet maple syrup with pecans topping the perfectly cooked chicken is the best comfort food for the people who like the combination of sweet with the meat; uses only a limited number of ingredients to deliver a satisfying dinner to the table; it is flexible which makes it easier to tweak to suit your taste; use a tablespoon of white vinegar to reduce the sweetness if you don’t enjoy the sweet food.

Recipe Info:

  • Servings: 4
  • Preparation time: 5 minutes
  • Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 ½ tablespoon Creole seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ cup pecans (chopped)
  • ¼ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

Rinse chicken under running water; with the help of paper towels pat dry the excess. Cover chicken breasts in a twofold plastic wrap or wax paper; flatten them to ½ inch thickness by pounding them with the flat side of a meat mallet. Repeat the process for all pieces.

Sprinkle pieces with 2 tablespoons of Creole seasonings evenly on all sides.

Melt 4 tablespoons of butter in a skillet over medium-high flame. When butter foam begins to subside, place seasoned chicken pieces carefully in the skillet. If the skillet is not large enough to hold all the pieces in a single layer without crowding it, work in batches. Cook for 10 minutes 5 minutes per each side turning twice during the process until chicken turns golden brown and cooks through. Transfer browned chicken to a plate using a slotted spoon. Repeat the process with the remaining chicken.

To the butter in the skillet add ¼ cup maple syrup with 2 tablespoons brown sugar. Loosen the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet with a wooden spoon. Bring to a boil; taste it; add/adjust spices and its quantities to your requirements; reduce heat to low medium; add chopped pecans to the sauce; cook for 1-2 minutes until pecans heated through; off the heat.

Arrange the chicken on serving platters; spoon the pecan mixture over the chicken; serve hot over a bed of rice with steamed vegetables on the side.

Notes & Tips:

  • Cooking time varies according to the thickness of the chicken.
  • Any part of the chicken can be used for this recipe.
  • Increase/decrease maple syrup and sugar depending on your sweet food tolerance.
  • Butter and olive oil can be used in 1:1 ratio instead of butter.
