  3. Add almonds to pan and toast, about 3 minutes.

  5. Stir in butter, sauce will thicken.
  6. Pour over chicken and garnish with green onions.

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.

Love, Love, Love!!! I use chicken tender for my meat. This is exactly like what I use to make at Dream Dinners. I leave the green onion off of my 11 year olds. We all LOVE this!!!
