Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • 2 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 to 2 pounds), split
  • 1 1/2 cups sliced almonds, broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a medium bowl, season bread crumbs with salt and pepper. Place eggs in a small bowl with 2 teaspoons water, and beat lightly. Dip chicken in egg, wiping away excess with your fingers, and dip in bread-crumb mixture. Dredge until lightly coated. Dip in egg again, and coat thoroughly with almonds.

  2. Step 2

    Heat butter and oil in a 12-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Saute chicken until nicely browned, about 3 minutes, and turn over. Cook 1 minute more; then transfer pan to oven, and bake until chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

    Delish! Just be careful the chicken might not cook through at 10 min in the oven. Had to cook mine for a further 10, maybe it wasn't as thin as the chicken used for the recipe?

    Otherwise, enjoy!!

    Easy and enjoyable. Whenever a recipe calls for chicken breasts, I use skinless thighs instead. Juicier (in case the recipe dries out the chicken).

    It's an easy recipe. I might skip the oven next time too.

    I tried this last night and it was fantastic. I used chicken tenders (or just cut the breasts into strips so they are smaller) and since they were smaller they cooked faster and were done only in the pan, so I skipped the oven all together. They turned out moist and super flavorful.
