Walnut Chicken for a Crowd

27 mins (prep 12, cooking 15)
15 ingredients
10 servings
Marinated chicken, grilled and served in a lemon-olive sauce, topped with toasted walnuts. This recipe serves 10, but can easily be modified to serve smaller numbers. On those occasions when you are serving a crowd, it's great to have a recipe that doesn't need to be doubled or tripled. Because the chicken is marinated, this recipe is obviously suited to those occasions when the guests have been invited: NOT to those occasions when they just turn up - uninvited. The marinading time has not been included in the preparation and cooking times. I have not tried freezing this recipe, but from experience with other chicken dishes my guess is that it would freeze well. I am not so sure about the walnuts. I'd been inclined to omit them from any portions that are frozen, and toast fresh ones at the time of serving. Slivered almonds or chopped pecans could be used in place of the walnuts.
