I had some leftover chicken breast to use up and thought I'd try this recipe out. To my surprise, my husband found this in the refrigerator and had eaten most of it up before I got to try it. He normally doesn't like dishes like this, but he really liked this. I liked it too. I only had sliced almonds so I subbed them for the slivered almond and didn't think it would make much of a difference. However, the sliced almonds got kind of lost where I think the slivered almonds would have given it more of a crunch.
This is excellent. I had everything on hand to make this for a quick lunch today. I always have cilantro.... had some left over chicken and viola, made a great lunch. Served with Avocado slices and lemon wedge. Thanks for a great *keeper* Made for ZWT3 ~V
I really liked this. I had some leftover spicy chicken, and this was a very nice use for it. I thought the dressing might taste odd with it and the almonds threw me, but when I was eating it, the flavors all came together nicely. Thank you for a lovely lunch!
