Almond Flour



Researchers from Loma Linda University recently discovered some great health benefits of pecans. Not only did the pecans help lower cholesterol, but research participants were better able to control their weight. In fact, adding just a handful of pecans can have a dramatic impact on most diets' effectiveness. Just as importantly, they found a pecan-enriched diet lowered blood triglyceride levels and helped maintain desirable levels of HDL ("good") cholesterol.

Taste-wise, it's hard to beat the delicious result of the marriage of chicken with pecans! So here are some of our very favorite Chicken Pecan recipes!
