- Add the chicken meat and simmer for 5 to 8 more minutes, adding more stock if needed.
- Stir in walnuts and Parmesan cheese, and simmer on low heat for 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
- Spoon chicken and sauce onto a serving platter and surround with potatoes and eggs. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.

We tried this recipe last night, and it was great. It reminded us of Peru. We didn't have aji available to us here, so cayenne was used in its place. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe.seajay2525 in Omaha loved it
