Wow what a nice meal.
The flavors all came together. Not over powering just right.

Very satisfying dinner tonight. I didleave out the almonds, and also left out the salt. A very nice combination of ingredients, and very very flavorful. I enjoyed the marinade flavors as well as the rest of us. Served with some baked potatoes. Great recipe. Made for 1-2-3 hits.
I'm always on the lookout for yet another wonderful recipe for preparing chicken breasts since we eat a lot of 'em, & this recipe is a definite keeper! The marinade does a nice number on the breasts & when served with a brown-rice-&-peas side, most satisfying! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]
