Baked Almond Chicken

"Easy to make, freezes well for OAMC. We made something similar to this at Dream Dinners and have continued to make it ourselves, it was so easy! You may want to pound out very thick breasts so you get more crusty topping per bite!"

Ready In:




  • Spray bottom of pan heavily with non-stick cooking spray. For best results the pan should be big enough that the breasts don't touch.
  • Cover bottom of dish with additional bread crumbs to coat thinly.
  • Combine bread crumbs, almonds and salt and pepper in a flat dish (i.e. pie plate).
  • Place flour and eggs (beaten) in two separate flat dishes.
  • Dip each chicken breast in flour, then egg, then dip into almond mixture. (Be sure its coated heavily and evenly at each step).
  • Place into prepared pan.
  • Sprinkle with any remaining almond mixture.
  • Spray over top of chicken heavily with cooking spray.
  • Bake at 400 for 12 minutes, turning chicken over, and baking additional 10 minutes (until internal temp is 165).
  • Serve with sweet & sour sauce.
  • Note: if freezing, follow all steps except spraying top of dish with cooking spray. Wait until thawed, then spray and bake.

  1. Quick and easy...would be perfect for families with kids. For us it could use more "zing" so next time I'll play with the spices. I think the 2-3 boneless breasts is right (or 4-6 halves) because the ingredients were perfect for one (.85 lb) package of Purdue Thin Sliced Boneless Chicken Breasts.
  2. I used 2 chicken breast halves and cut the recipe in half. Very easy and delicious. The coating was crisp and light. I will be adding this recipe to my OAMC rotation. Made for My 3 Chefs 2007.


<p>I'm currently a stay at home mom to two boys (7 and 5). Most of the time I feel like this is more challenging than my old job as an IT analyst! My husband is super, and is supportive of anything I do - currently addicted to zaar! We've been married 9 years, both our second time around). <br /> <br />I love scrapbooking, cloth diapering, organizing, getting things for really good deals, and spending time with my family. We're in the process of going green and having lots of fun doing it. I have an Etsy store:<br /> <br />My rating system: <br />5 stars - outstanding. Save this one for company or make it very often for ourselves. <br />4 stars - very good. Something we would definitely make again (and again). <br />3 stars - was good. Tastes may not have suited us but was a good recipe. May or may not try it again. <br />2 stars - was ok. Probably would not make again. <br />1 star - didn't turn out, would not make again. <br /> <br /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /> <br /><img src= alt= /></p>
