To Cook

Season the chicken with salt, pepper and lemon juice.  Set aside.

Toast the walnuts in a dry pan, then tip them into the processor with the other dressing ingredients.  Whiz for a few seconds.  Taste for seasoning, leave in the fridge until ready to serve.

Heat a pan or black grill pan.  Cook the chicken skin side down for 4-5 minutes to get a delicious crisp skin.  Turn over and cook for another 2-3 minutes.  Finish the cooking for another 10-15 minutes in the hot oven.  Very good served with spinach, a few new potatoes and a spoonful of the dressing on top. Any leftover dressing will last for a week in the refrigerator.
