    2       tb           Unsalted butter
    1       t            Vegetable oil
 
   LIGHTLY DREDGE THE CHICKEN in the seasoned flour, patting to remove any
   excess. Brush 1 side of each breast generously with mustard. Pat the pecans
   into the mustard. Turn and repeat on the other side. Place the chicken in a
   flat dish, cover, and refrigerate for 20 minutes. In a large heavy skillet,
   heat the butter and oil just until the butter foams. Add the chicken
   breasts and saute them over medium-high heat until the pecans are lightly
   browned, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook the second side for an additional 2
   minutes. Remove at once.
