I have made a version of this using honey roasted peanuts before, but subbing the almonds for peanuts was awesome and much healthier! It is definitely a keeper! Thanks for posting.

Well I made a few adjustments due to diet and then I made a few errors so I won't review for now but will say that DH liked the result so I will keep working on it. We can't have yeast or cheese so I sub'd whole wheat matzos that I blended along with probably more almonds than called for. I totally forgot about the parsley - never have fresh on hand anyways though. I used powdered garlic. This is the first time I've seen a recipe using oil first then crumbs. I can't tell if it improved things. I missed the oil on top so I may spray some olive oil next time. Also the bottom came out soggy and I was going to say that I will put the chicken on a rack next time... but then I noticed that I was supposed to use a flat sheet and I used a casserole pan. I think I still may try the rack next time.
