This was delicious!! I used my food processor to grind the almonds. The chicken turned out very moist. Loved the almond flavor with the chicken. Thanks Dancer^

I made this just as stated. I found the almonds did nothing to the taste. Simply another chicken dish without very much flavor, sorry.

Wonderful. I echo the previous reviews--the chicken was really moist inside its delightful crunchy coating. I used half butter and half peanut oil to saute the chicken. This is one of the best chicken preparations I ever have had.
