Encrusted Walnut Chicken


(7 votes) 4 7

The crunchy and yet tender texture of the chicken will please you,and a nice punch of spice matches well with the nutty richness of the crust. Serve with toasted French bread and a herbed spinach salad.

  • Really didn't like this at all. I didn't get any of the horseradish taste, thought there was way too much of the walnuts. Still have two chicken breasts in my refrigerator that I really don't want to eat.
