Packed with omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts add richness to this light breading; the coating keeps the chicken moist.

    Delicious and easy to make for a weeknight dinner. I definitely recommend using the lemon slices. I graciously drizzled fresh lemon juice over the cooked chicken, and it gave it an amazing tangy addition. This is now one of my favorite ways to prepare chicken, and it just requires simple ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen!

    Another new week night favorite for my family! The chicken stays so juicy; I followed the recipe exactly, and the chicken cooked perfectly. Try it with pecans too! Very yummy.

    I did a light fry, but still had to bake for closer to 15-20 minutes. Next time I'll go straight to the oven. Even so, the recipe was delicious. I used pecans instead of walnuts (just what I had in the pantry).

    Oilive Oil after 250 degrees F turns to a trans fat.Canola oil is genettically modified with the weed killer round-up.

    This was a super simple meal to prepare! I am making it this week! Very moist and flavor filled-it's a great recipe for someone who wants to try something new, but doesn't want to spend a lot of time or who isn't a "pro" chef! :)

    I actually bake the chicken immediately without frying. The oven should be preheated. THe same amount mentioned in the receipe take about 40 mins, only turning them once.

    I made this tonight and thought that it was nice. After reading the other comments I had really high expectations and was a bit disapointed. Very easy to make though.

    This was incredibly delicious! I used a whole wheat pita since I didn't have the bread, and the breading came out fine. The chicken was moist and yummy, and I served it with baked sweet potato fries also from Whole Living.

    The chicken came out very juicy and flavorful. Unfortunately I had to use vegetable oil as a substitute. Does anyone know where I can find grape seed oil?
