Chicken Breasts with Sweet Potato Pecan Butter

This is a simple recipe that provides a lot of flavor, and a quick, easy dinner entree.  These go well with a squash dish or sweet potatoes. 

Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
Sweet Potato Pecan Butter

Lightly salt and pepper the chicken breasts.  Cover liberally on the top with Sweet Potato Pecan Butter and place on a baking pan.  Place into a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes (depends on the size of the fillets).  Serve and enjoy!
