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!!

Very, very good. I also didn't have the smokehouse-type almonds, but I did have bulk slivered almonds. I toasted those briefly in a skillet and then added kosher salt and a dab of liquid smoke as was suggested by someone else. Using Jack Daniel's Spicy sauce it was quite good. The DH practically howled and barked at the moon, which is always a good sign. I also took Susie D's suggestion of the Rosemary Potatoes and that went over quite well too. A successful supper!!!

I love under thirty minute recipes and am always on the search for good ones. This recipe definitely is that! The chicken has such a nice flavor and came out with a crispy coating and moist interior. I served with Awesome Green Beans and Rosemary Potatoes - Microwave. Thank you for sharing a recipe I will use again! Reviewed for ZWT 3.

We thoroughly enjoyed this chicken! I did not have smoked almonds so I added some liquid smoke and kosher salt to the almonds and roasted them before processing them. Delicious breading!!! The chicken was so moist I could easily cut it with a fork. Our breasts were a bit thick and took about 22 minutes to cook through. I mixed half of my Carolina bbq sauce with half kraft honey BBQ. Again, delicious! Thanks Ma Hiker for a totally awesome dinner! ZWT3

What a great way to serve chicken! I had never thought of using smoky almonds as coating - the chicken was moist and the salty almonds just made it soooo good!! I didn't have any fresh bread, so used some dried breadcrumbs I had. Forgot to serve with sauce, but it was so flavourful that I didn't miss it! Thanks Ma Hiker! Made this for PAC 2007.

This chicken was flavorsome, crispy texture on the outside and moist on the inside. The only changed made was I used Mascarpone cheese instead of the sour cream, as it was all I had at home and I cooked it for 30 mins at 180 degrees Celsius, as my chicken breast was very thick. Thank you MA Hiker.
