"Delicious chicken with a crisp almond crust. Add a simple tossed salad for a complete meal."
1 (3 1/2 ounce) bags
boil-in-bag brown rice
4 (4 ounce)
skinless boneless chicken breast halves
chopped green onion
Preheat oven to 450°.
Prepare rice according to package directions; keep warm.
Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; pound to 1/2-inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Sprinkle both sides of chicken with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper.
Place flour in a zip-top plastic bag. Working with one piece at a time, add chicken to bag; seal and shake to coat. Remove chicken from bag, shaking off excess flour. Repeat with remaining flour and chicken. Combine buttermilk and honey mustard in a shallow bowl. Combine almonds and breadcrumbs in a shallow bowl. Dip chicken in buttermilk mixture; dredge in almond mixture.
Place chicken in a baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until browned on the outside and chicken juices run clear when pierced. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt and green onions to rice; serve with chicken.
