Almond-Crusted Chicken

11 Jan

Super great alternative to breaded chicken! My kiddos loved these chicken nuggets! ;o) They asked me when I would be making them again!


Almond-Crusted Chicken


¾ cup almonds, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons Jamaican jerk seasoning or favorite seasoning
¼ teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon grated lime rind
1 ½ pounds skinned and boned chicken breast cutlets
1 tablespoon olive oil, divided


1. Process  almonds and next 3 ingredients in a food processor or blender 45 seconds or until finely ground. Place almond mixture in a shallow bowl.

2. Brush chicken evenly with ½ Tbsp. olive oil. Dredge chicken in almond mixture.

3. Cook chicken in remaining ½ Tbsp. (or more if needed) hot olive oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 4 minutes on each side or until done.

Makes about 5 servings
