2 tablespoons butter or margarine to grease a shallow dish

3 egg yolks

1 teaspoon lemon zest

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 (16 ounce) cans diced pecans

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar


Rub chicken breasts in butter sauce and water. Coat with lime zest and lemon juice. Place rumpled paper under chicken breasts; cover. Remove paper; refrigerate chicken marinating marinade for 24 hours or overnight.

Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in pecans and coconut; cook, stirring constantly, for 2 to 3 minutes or until lightly browned.

Roll up chicken; broil or broil chicken in microwave for about 10 minutes on each side, or until flaky. Place crimped side of plastic wrap over chicken in microwave basket; place plastic wrap over chicken in microwave basket to prevent the chicken from sticking onto the plastic wrap.

I loved the cookie crust. It was on the soft side, kind of slick, and tasted nice. It was a little bit time consuming to make, but I was able to cut back on both tabs of the cookie crusts. Unbelievably good cookie crust! Thank you for sharing!
