Almond Chicken

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by DogAndCatDoc

Finally made this dish and was not disappointed. I didn't have almonds on hand so I subbed pecans and crushed those to be medium fine instead...very good. Will probably use them again next time. I also used whole oat flour and cooked the chicken in olive oil. Very good along with seasoned brown and wild rice (as seen in picture).

Good recipe! I followed it to a tee except I'm pretty sure I only used about 2 lbs of chicken pieces (boneless, skinless breast & thigh meat). I think I would've ran out of dredging mixture if I had used 3 lbs. After the chicken was cooked, I removed it from the pan and made a quick sauce with some apricot jam, soy sauce, hot pepper flakes, rice vinegar and the pan drippings and served it with steamed rice. Yummy and will definitely make again!
