An absolute 5* recipe! My husband and children loved it. Makes a change from the usual breadcrumb coated chicken. I had four chicken breasts instead of chicken tenders, which I pounded before coating in the egg and almond mixture. I also fried instead of baked, because I had something else in the oven! It worked really well and is already on my children's request list :) Thanks Charishma!
