I made something very similar without the chicken once before and absolutely loved it. It's also great reheated. I modified this recipe from one that I found off of Enjoy!

So delicious. I omitted the walnuts and accidently over lemoned it, so I counteracted it with three packets of splenda! New favorite.

Summery, fresh taste with the lemon juice...light and healthy. Overall though, I was not impressed by flavor of the dish, lacked a certain punch that could have won me over.

Tasty! I added a few mushrooms in as well, and omitted the walnut halves.
