Butter crackers are aptly named: they deserve their reputation for richness and for that cracker-crunch that melds so well with cheese spreads. Butter crackers also meld well with chicken; crushed and baked on top, they add their buttery flavor to the succulent chicken breast, resulting in a flavor and texture combo that can't be beat. Tip: To peel the carrot with less effort, lay it down on your cutting board peel one half, rolling it as you peel. (Be sure to peel in a motion away from you!)

Prepare the Ingredients
Peel, trim, and cut carrot into ¼" rounds.
Stem and coarsely chop parsley. If desired, reserve a few leaves whole for garnish.
Gently crush crackers.
Pat chicken dry, and season both sides with ¼ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Cook the Carrot
Place a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add carrot, honey, white wine, ½ cup water, half the butter (reserve remaining for sauce), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to hot pot. Bring to a simmer.
Once simmering, stir occasionally until liquid is almost completely evaporated, 8-10 minutes.
Remove from burner. Set aside to cool slightly, 5 minutes.
Once cooled, stir in chopped parsley (reserve whole leaves for garnish) and pecans.
While carrots cook, cook chicken.
Cook the Chicken
Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 1 tsp. olive oil. Add chicken to hot pan and sear until browned, 3-4 minutes per side.
Transfer chicken to prepared baking sheet. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Spread mayonnaise evenly on chicken, then top with crushed crackers, pressing gently to adhere.
Roast in hot oven until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.
While chicken roasts, make sauce.
Make the Sauce
Return pan used to cook chicken to medium heat and add 2 Tbsp. water and demi-glace. Bring to a simmer, stirring occasionally.
Once simmering, remove from burner. Swirl in remaining butter.
Finish the Dish
