By using honey as a sweetener, I eliminated sugar and cornstarch to make a healthier recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pound chicken breasts until approx 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and garlic powder.
  2. Brown in a heavy pan in 1 tbsp of oil.
  3. While this is cooking, melt butter in seperate pan over medium heat and coarse chop almonds (a quick chopper works great for this). Add almonds to butter and saute for 3-5 minutes, or until almond are coated in butter.
  4. When chicken is done, drizzle 1 tbsp of honey on each chicken breast.
  5. Remove from heat, top with buttered almonds.
