Creamy Pecan Chicken


8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup plus 2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard, divided
1 cup chopped pecans
16 ounce carton sour cream
1/3 cup water


Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper then place in a greased 13"x9" baking dish. Stir together butter and 1/4 cup mustard; pour over chicken breasts. Sprinkle pecans over the top; bake, uncovered, at 375 degrees for 35 minutes or until juices run clear when chicken is pierced. Remove chicken to a serving platter; reserve drippings. In a large saucepan, combine remaining mustard, drippings and sour cream and water. Cook over medium heat until bubbly; stirring constantly. To serve, pour mix over chicken.

Makes 8 servings
