I went right ahead and tried one of the recipes: Pecan Chicken. It got an enthusiastic double thumbs up from both myself and N, and has been added to our repertoire. It's chicken sliced into thin strips, browned lightly, then put in a casserole dish and covered with a butter-pecan-maple syrup sauce and baked further. Mmm... all that buttery pecan goodness... I'll be trying more recipes from this cookbook!
