      The chicken is delicious by itself! The sauce is a hollandaise sauce with a bit of lime flair. I used pecans instead of walnuts...much easier to find these locally where I live. I didn't serve the sauce over one piece of chicken, so I can slice it and serve over a salad tomorrow for lunch. Great recipe....easy to make and it goes together easily since you make the sauce while the chicken is cooking. Just make sure your eye is cooled down before placing the egg mixture back on the stove....otherwise you'll have a fried egg on the bottom of your sauce....whisk, whisk, whisk! Thanks for sharing!

      this was out of this world!! we all loved this chicken dish, and the sauce is to die for! the only changes i made were to cut the chicken into thin strips, so i doubled the walnuts (which i seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder). as for the sauce, i skipped out on the eggs for dh's sake and i just added some heavy cream in at the end instead. i also doubled the zest and juice per other reviews. this was insanely delicious! we will make this often!!

      A wonderfully delicious chicken dish. I wasn't sure if this would re-heat well, so I scaled the dish down to two serves and - since we love citrusy flavours - proportionally increased the quantity of lime zest and lime juice. We SO enjoyed this dish - loved the walnuts - with creamy mashed potatoes and steamed spinach with pine nuts. I look forward to enjoying this again when serving it to guests - the sooner the better! Thanks for sharing this recipe, loof. Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
