      The marinade for this is excellent and the recipe is easy and very tasty. I would cut back on the oil next time because it ended up being a little too greasy. I made exactly as directed except for one boo-boo! I used soya sauce in the sauce instead of chicken broth so it was a little too salty. Still good though! Made for my teammate for ZWT6. Thanks BakinBaby! :)

      Very good Almond chicken. I made the recipe as written and DH finished off what was left. I would say this serves 2. I did serve it with Chinese Hot and Sour Pork Soup and not rice or noodles. It was a great meal for us.

      Great blend of flavors! I only used 1 T oil for the whole dish - my almonds were already toasted, so I just sauteed the veggies, found I had plenty of oil in the pan for the chicken, and added the almonds just before the sauce. Thanks for sharing!
