Honey Pecan Chicken Strips

Original recipe from Southern Living, I think. :)

1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
2 pounds chicken breast strips
3/4 cup Dijon mustard, divided
3/4 cup honey, divided
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups finely chopped pecans
1/2 tsp. curry powder

Combine first 4 ingredients; sprinkle evenly over chicken in a shallow dish or zip-top freezer bag. Stir together 1/4 cup mustard, 1/4 cup honey, and garlic; pour over chicken. Cover or seal, and marinate for 2 or more hours.

Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Dredge chicken in pecans; place on a lightly greased rack in a foil-lined broiler pan.

Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, or until chicken is done.

Stir together remaining 1/2 cup mustard, 1/2 cup honey, and curry powder; serve sauce with chicken strips.
