In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350.
Toast walnuts on a cookie sheet for about 10 minutes. Cool and pulse in food processor until finely ground.
Heat half the butter and EVOO in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. When foamy, brown chicken on all sides, in batches. This is the part that takes longest! Remove when brown, add next batch. Top up butter and EVOO as needed. Use more if you have too. Season with salt as you go.
The next time we make this we’ll cut smaller pieces of chicken. It should be falling about by the time you’re ready to eat it.
Garnish with chopped cilantro (MJ loved this!) or with pomegranate seeds if you were smart enough to get some (we weren’t, but will be the next time).
Here's a little bit more about Victoria Abbott, author of the book collector mysteries.
Victoria is an artist and photographer and MJ is the author of 13 books in three other series, as Mary Jane Maffini. They really really like dogs. They try not to fight when they're working on their books or recipes.
Deep down, they really love each other and they really really love their book collector mysteries and are happily waiting for The Wolfe Widow, third in the series, due September, 2014.
