What's Your Dish? Butter pecan chicken skewers

Scott & Joey from Linwell Farms share their recipe for butter pecan chicken skewers.


  • 20 - 30 chicken breast tenders
  • 20 - 30 wooden skewers
  • 1 cup of melted butter
  • 4 tablespoons of honey
  • 1 cup of toasted pecans
  • Salt, pepper and sugar


  1. Brine the chicken overnight. The brining water is 4 cups of water, slightly heated to help dissolve the sugar and salt. 1/2 cup of salt and 1/2 cup of sugar. Pour the brine over the chicken and refrigerate. Also soak the skewers overnight so they won't burn if you cook over a flame.
  2. The next day, pull the chicken from the brine and pat dry. Skewer the chicken. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the honey. Keep the honey butter warm.
  4. Shell the pecans and crush into small pieces. Put on a plate.
  5. Grill the chicken for about 4 minutes per side. The fire or griddle should be hot  enough to sear the tenders.
  6. Pull from the heat, drizzle with the honey butter, roll in the pecans and serve!
