Walnut Rosemary Oven Fried Chicken

After the Daring Cook’s Challenge where we used nuts to make a savory meal, I decided I definitely wanted to explore this concept some more. I found this recipe at Cooking Light, which is fantastic because not only is this meal delicious but healthy! I also made a yummy homemade Honey Mustard dipping sauce (my husbands favorite!) This turned out great. It had a nice crunchy coating and was very moist and flavorful! Neither my husband or I could decide if we liked it better with or without the sauce, it was great both ways. Which way do you like best?
