CHAKHOKHBILI WITH WALNUTS

In this recipe we show how to make a traditional Georgian dish called Chakhokhbili (Georgian: ჩახოხბილი). The name comes from the Georgian word “khokhobi” which means “pheasant,” but nowadays it is most usually made with chicken. Chakhokhbili is made using a whole chicken, cut into pieces with the skin left on. This recipe for Chakhokhbili includes walnuts (a very popular ingredient in Georgian cuisine).
