I've made this twice, the first time I followed the recipe exactly as written and it was fantastic - tonight however I realized I didn't have any scallions (green onions) but I did have a small shallot. I sliced the shallot and added it after sauteing the almonds and just before adding the wine. I was just as good. This has moved to the top of my boneless chicken recipes list...definitely a classy meal for anytime - but easy enough for a weeknight dinner.

  5. Stir in butter, sauce will thicken.
