Tasty Tuesday: Almond-Crusted Chicken

Posted on: February 12, 2013

I tried another new recipe last night:  Almond-Crusted Chicken

The original recipe was from a Company’s Coming cookbook (don’t remember which one because I ripped the page out) and it called for pecans.  I only had almonds on hand so I substituted them for the pecans.

I cut down on the amount of ground nuts, which dropped the amount of calories.  I added the oregano and probably will throw in some additional herbs to bump up the flavour next time.

This recipe came together super fast and had a mild nutty flavour.

Almond-Crusted Chicken (makes 4 chicken breasts):

3 tbsp dijon mustard
2 tbsp honey
1/2 cup ground almonds
1/4 cup bread crumbs
oregano or other herbs, salt and paper to taste

Combine the mustard and honey; brush over both sides of chicken breasts.

Combine almonds, bread crumbs, herbs and salt and pepper.  Press into chicken breasts to coat both sides.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Making it a Meal:  serve with roasted potatoes and steamed vegetables.
