Default Amazingly good almond covered lemony chicken

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm, I wanted to lick my plate seriously. Very easy, fairly inexpensive if you can get the slivered almonds on sale (look for the salad topper kind).


Makes 4 servings
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/3 cup slivered almonds
4 tbsp butter
1.5 tbsp minced garlic (if you prefer)
2 tbsp lemon juice
a couple pinches of salt and pepper

Rub salt and pepper onto thawed chicken breast. Pop in oven for 25 minutes on 350. Melt butter on stove and stir in lemon juice, garlic and almonds. Let almonds start to get brown. Add the chicken and cover for 5 minutes. Flip chicken and cover for another five minutes. Remove chicken to plates and carefully portion out the almond mixture onto each piece.

Mmmmmmmmm, so good and easy!! I served this with herbed, buttery green beans and it was awesome

ooooh that sounds so GOOD! Does the sauce take on a big almond-y taste? DH doesn't like nuts, and neither do the kids but *I* do, and I was wondering if i could just take the nuts out. Or, maybe, I'd just add mine on at the end

No, I don't think so. I think the lemon and butter and garlic definitely comes through more than anything else. The nutty crunch on top just kicks it from 3 stars to 4. Just don't forget the step of letting the chicken cook in the sauce for ten minutes. That's how I got the taste all the way through the chicken breasts.

Dill,oregano,minced garlic and a dash of Italian seasonings.
I did it by sight and a taste test.

Sounds really good. I think I'll give that a try, and the green beans, too.

Just wanted to come back to this and say thank you for the recipe! I made this tonight, and it was yummy! Even dh raved, and he's obnoxiously picky during the summer when the heat kills his appetite.

This sounds awesome. How important is the butter to the flavor? I have gallbladder issues and need to eat super low fat. Do you thin I could cut the butter in half or use olive oil instead without compromising the flavor much?

Ooh so yummy. And it really cooks this quickly? Do the chicken breasts have to be thin, or do regular unpounded ones cook through in that time?

We'll be trying this soon.
