This is a rich, sweet and tangy chicken dish. I invented this recipe for my daughter, who has Crohn's Disease. It is designed to be nutritionally dense, so it is deliberately high in fat. You could leave out the cream, but the ground almonds would still add fat. We serve it with couscous or plain rice - it is rich so you only need small helpings and can add vegetable side dishes of your choice. It's also delicious cold - as a salad or in sandwiches, rather like Coronation Chicken. It freezes beautifully.
