    Used different ingredients. Thanks Dave for a great chicken recipe. I used brandy and whatever other liqueur I had on hand - I don't think it has to be hazelnut liquer to taste good. I made this as a mid week supper and impressed everyone. The chicken was very moist and tender and the hazelnuts in the crust had a great flavour - and I don't normally like nuts! Even warmed up the next day it still tasted great! Thanks!  -  18 Jul 2008


    We loved it! My guests raved about how good it was. Our local shop had no hazelnuts, so I used almonds. Very quick and easy. Thanks!  -  18 Jul 2008
