Walnut-Crusted Baked Chicken

It's summer, so I am using more chicken recipes than otherwise...This got absolutely rave reviews from those who had it last Saturday. Please note that the ingredients are approximated values only, you can experiment with more or less depending on how much chicken do you have. This amount will cover about 8 pieces.

You will need:
8 pieces of chicken (thighs or breast) patted dry
1 cup breadcrumbs (I actually grated my own from crusty foccaccia bread, but you can use storebought just fine)
1 cup ground walnut/ or pecan
1/2 cup grated parmeggiano cheese
oil, salt and pepper to taste

Rub chicken with salt and pepper. Mix breadcrumbs, nuts and cheese in medium bowl, pour it on a tray or piece of wax paper.
Line baking sheet with foil, rub with oil. Preheat oven to 400 F.
Coat chicken pieces in crumb mixture until well coated. Pat excess off.
Place chicken pieces on lined, oiled baking sheet in one layer. Place in pre-heated oven and bake for 40-45 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 F and juice runs clear when checked with toothpick.
Serve with sauteed vegetables or just a big bowl of salad.

That sounds good. Lauki is actually cooking at home quite a bit now as part of our diet. We could use a new recipe to throw in the mix. Our arsenal isn't exactly overwhelming in size.

Anna - sounds great until you get to the walnuts. for some reason i've just never been able to do the nut thing.

Kiki - please feel free to drop by theBlogternative, which is my forum and Russ's overflow forum. Anyway, the recipes section is availible without signing up, and I have some recipes that I think are real gems. the URL is with my post info.
