Buttermilk Pecan Chicken

Buttermilk Pecan Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 egg
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup ground pecans (I put 2 cups of pecans in a food processor)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 cup butter, melted
Between two sheets of waxed paper pound the chicken until fairly thin. In a bowl, beat the egg and add the cream; set aside. In a shallow pan mix the ground pecans, sesame seeds, and spices together. Dip the chicken in the egg mix and roll in the pecan mix. Place in a baking pan. Once finished with all of the pieces, drizzle with the melted butter. Bake at 350 for 40 minutes or until a nice golden brown. Turns out fork tender, juicy, and crunchy.
NOTE: You will have pecan mixture left over, so I don't believe that the carb count could be that high. Save the rest of the mixture in a airtight container or bag in the frig for the next time. This mix is especially good on fish, too.
