Almondine Chicken

It's been a while since I have posted a recipe... and we thought this would be a cooking blog. I know that none of you ever get in a rut!

This is an old family favorite. That quick 'go-to' dish when things get busy, and you need something quick and filling.

Almondine Chicken
4 chicken breasts
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup butter
2 Tbs flour
1/4 cup white wine
2 cloves garlic, diced
fresh rosemary
In a skillet, melt butter saute diced garlic. Dredge chicken breasts in flour with a little salt and pepper, and sliced almonds. Brown breasts in butter, turning once. Top with any remaining almonds and fresh rosemary. Add white wine. Cover and cook 10-20 minutes, until done. Serve with rice.

Any recipe that calls for you to 'brown breasts in butter' is traditionally southern cooking. Flavored sliced almonds make this that much easier~ If it could be any easier!
Y'all enjoy!
Sandi

Anything with almonds is great to me. In fact, I've got some green beans I need to cook soon, and I think I'll make them "almondine." Thanks, Sandi!

This sounds DELICIOUS! A nice twist on chicken... I've had trout almondine, but never chicken... and with all my kids' after school activities, workday meals need to be quick!

PS - we did another Whistlestop order this week! ;)

ShabbyInTheCity said...

Major yum! And easy too!

Splaneyo said...

This looks really good - this will go on my "must try" list.

Susan Ramey Cleveland said...

Oooooo, yum! I bet this is good. I'll have to try it sometime.
Enjoyed Fanny's video. My book club has already read most of her books--except Redbird Christmas, I think.
