Quick, easy, a very attractive and delicious plate to make. I didn't trust the 4 minute sauté on each side in fear the chicken wouldn't fully cook. So I let it go quite a bit longer (like 8 min/side w/ more oil). Still came out wonderfully.

This was wonderful! I'm not sure where you got this recipe but it was also in the latest holiday issue of taste of home and I looked it up on here to see if anyone had posted it. We have made it a tradition for my husband to pick out a new recipe from a holiday magazine that looks good, and this is what he picked this year. My husband loved it, he rated it 4.5 stars out of 5 (which there are few recipes that he rates above a 4, so thats saying a lot). The taste of this was just wonderful and next time I think I'll try this with salmon! This recipe is most defantly guest wrothy- if not even restaurant worthy!!!

You are right, this is a great GUY food! My husband loved it and started thinking of other meats we could use the sauce on, like roasted pork. I kept the sauce separate because I knew my kids wouldn't care for it, but they all enjoyed the almond-crusted chicken. I had to improvise a little, I didn't have strawberry preserves, but I did have raspberry. It was still wonderful! I also had to use vidalia onions because I had no green ones or shallots. One last change...I only had bone-in chicken thighs. I fried them for a while to crust them then threw them in to a 425 degree oven for finish cooking while I made the sauce. Thanks for this AWESOME recipe! It was fairly easy too. We will be making this one again and again!
