As you can see in the photo, I used coconut instead of almond. My friend who was over for dinner has a severe nut allergy and I didn't want to have to make a trip to the hospital! BUT - these were very good, even with unsweetened coconut. I will try next time with almonds. I was a little leery about marinating the chicken in a egg-soy sauce mixture; it turned out very good.
