The hazelnut didn't light on fire after several attempts. The flavor was way too Hazelnut-y for my taste. Read More

This was an amazing dish. I did not have brandy but it still tasted great. This was my first time lighting alcohol on fire. It is not at all scary. However the leftovers were not very good. Read More

We loved it! My guests raved about how good it was. Our Kroger had no hazelnuts so I used almonds. Very quick and easy. Thanks! Read More

I loved this recipe but BEWARE. I followed the suggestions to double the sauce but don't do it all at once because I had a flame up to my ceiling! I never used brandy so I am lucky I still have eyebrows! Add the brandy a little at a time and let it burn off. This tastes excellent and looks a lot more difficult than it is. I used the same recipe on Salmon (no breading just the hazelnuts) and i loved it. Read More

Thanks Dave for a great chicken recipe. I used brandy and whatever other liquer I had on hand - I don't think it has to be hazelnut liquer to taste good. I made this as a mid week dinner 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! Read More

So easy to prepare once you have all the ingredients. But I don't think that it's meant for 2 servings...more like 4! The Frangelico is really sweet so I think next time I'll use more brandy than the Frangelico. My mom who's not fond of chicken was thoroughly impressed and made it tonight for some of her friends!

My husband thought this merited a 4 so I will give it that. In my opinion though it was not that great. The bourbon chicken that I made last week surpasses this recipe by leaps and bounds (see reviews). This was pretty but I thought the hazelnut flavor was a bit overwhelming. Again my husband liked it.
