Cajun Chicken Morsels

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt

one stick of butter
olive oil

4 boned chicken breasts cut into one inch cubes

Combine flour, spices and pecans in a shallow dish.

Melt half a stick of butter in a small saucepan.  Dip each chicken piece into the butter, then in the flour mixture to coat.

Melt rest of butter in a large frying pan with some olive oil over medium heat.  Add chicken, sauté until browned on both sides and cooked through.  Remove from pan and keep warm in 200 oven, while you cook the rest of the chicken pieces. 

Serve chicken with mustard or ketchup, or you can go retro/Chinese and mix mustard and ketchup together. 

At a party, used toothpicks for the chicken or serve as an appetizer!
