Chicken Salad Sandwich

Toasted Pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spritz a baking sheet with cooking spray. Chop enough pecans to make 1 cup. Now spread them on a baking sheet and toast them just until they become aromatic, about 5 minutes. Watch them carefully, as they are easily scorched. Remove from the oven and set aside.
