Meal No. 1723: Pecan-Crusted Chicken with Bourbon Sauce

As the skies dried out this past Wednesday, and the winds brought a considerably more chilly evening into Winston-Salem, I retreated to the kitchen as dinnertime approached to prepare a meal for five. It's been over four years since I last made this one, so it was high time to bring it back: pecan-crusted chicken breasts with bourbon sauce. Also on the plates: buttered garden peas and stuffing. I made a note on the recipe that those breasts have to be cut down or pounded, though: it took almost an hour-and-a-half to get them cooked through! I hate to serve dinner so doggone late...
