Almond Crusted Chicken

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Recipe Reader

From Williams Sonoma's Cooking Basics. It uses boneless skinless chicken breasts and is quite delicious. It's a great dish for company. I used a little more almonds and parmesan cheese for the coating - it depends on the size of your chicken breasts. I also prefer more shallot and a little more wine.

What a winner of a dish! I confess that chicken breasts are way down my list of things to love but I thoroughly enjoyed every bite. I couldn't tell what DH thought as he just kept making yum yum noises :)
The only thing I'd do differently is to make more sauce. Definitely a company worthy meal. Thanks so much for posting it!
