Ooh, baby! You know how I like it! A gentle tickle while I my groove gets on and on and on. It’s the little things in life that give us the most pleasure. I don’t need no plasma screen, limousine, nor sports team. All I need is your soft touch on my most special of areas. Not too gentle, not too rough. That’s it. That’s exactly how we approach this simple chicken ENTRÉE. A few extra steps result make the classic baked chicken into a magnum opus of flavorful pleasure. Sure we could get our panties in a bunch making something uber-gourmet multi-step dish. But sometimes simple and succulent is sexy. So what are you waiting for? These walnuts aren’t going to tickle themselves!
