    Mirj's Note:

    This really turns plain-old-chicken into something interesting. I've doubled this recipe and it works just as well. Goes great with some Basmati rice and a green salad. Prep time includes marinating the chickens. Use matzoh meal instead of breadcrumbs and this is perfect for Passover.

      This is a great recipe. My husband really liked it and he is very picky.

      I make this using dried rice crumbs and almond meal for when the (coeliac) kids come for dinner. I also use greek yoghurt instead of the mayonnaise.

      Absolutely wonderful ! is their verdict each time. I think they miss their occasional Colonel Sanders meal, though they say this is much better.

      The flavors in this dish are superb; the resulting chicken is moist and tender and full of such flavor--definitely worthy of five stars. I did however, make some changes. First, based upon CG's recommendation, I too ground the nuts. I went a step further and did away with the bread crumbs and just coated the chicken with the almonds and spices. I eliminated the olive oil at the end and my chicken was terrific without the added oil/fat. As for the marinade, I made it as directed, but think that when I make this again I will substitute buttermilk for the mayonaise. Great dish, Mirj! Thank you!!
