Tips for Almond Chicken
You can swap almonds for your favorite nuts, including pecans, walnuts, cashews, or macadamia nuts. This almond chicken dish can also be cooked in a pan, rather than the oven, giving it a crispy texture, simply brown the chicken within a pan, and pour the sauce over after half-cooked, cover and cook on low until tender or the internal temperature reaches 165° Fahrenheit.
