Delicious and easy recipe. I used the original Sweet Baby Ray's bbq. My grocery store also did not carry the smoked almonds but followed the recommendation of another reviewer and used liquid smoke. I added 1 tsp of liquid smoke with 1/2 cup unsalted, blanched almonds and a dash of salt. I roasted the almonds in the 400 degree oven (with the liquid smoke) for 5 minutes and then followed the food processing instructions. Great!!

  3. In pie plate, mix sour cream with 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce.
  4. Dip chicken into sour-cream mixture, then into almond mixture to coat, firmly pressed so mixture adheres; arrange on ungreased cookie sheet.
