Walnut and Herb Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Lorraine of AZ

This is absolutely my favorite way of preparing baked chicken thighs. I find the coating is enough to coat 7 thighs. I use chicken thighs with the bone in, but I pull the skin off. Skinless breasts may also be used, but we think the thighs are more flavorful. This recipe came from an ad for Diamond walnuts.

This was a very nice way to fix chicken and the 45 minute bake time was spot on for my boneless, skinless thighs. The coating was just a bit dry for us...next time I may dot with butter or spray with Pam. Thanks for sharing. Made for AU/NZ Recipe Swap #16
