30 Minute Almond Chicken

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

This is a very delicious recipe that turns an ordinary dinner into an extraordinary meal with a springtime twist. If you want a dinner that is quick, easy, and healthy this is it! Unlike most one-dish-meals, this one has three distinct flavors that blend well. I was hesitant at first to use thigh meat as we like white meat, but I think this cut really made the dish! I found this recipe in Kraft’s Food and Family (Spring 2005) Magazine.

This was super simple and really enjoyed by my family. I had a hard time getting the rice to soften up, so that is why I am rating this 4 stars instead of 5. I ended up having to boil 1 cup of water and through the rice in there for 5 minutes until it was ready to eat. I will try to move the liquid to a small sauce pan before adding the rice next time I make this. I will definitely be saving this for nights that I need something quick and easy. Thanks NcMysteryShopper.
