Classic Recipe for Chicken with Almonds

Updated: Jun 8

Inspired by The Settlement Cookbook

This was an easy recipe to make and full of flavor. To prepare the chicken, it is first coated in a crunchy crust of ground almonds, then added to rice and soup. Easy, simple, but tasty and satisfying, served with a tomato salad on the side, it is the perfect light dinner. Personally, I enjoyed making the soups from scratch however, if you are short for time, store-bought works just as well— just make sure to adjust the seasonings.


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup sliced almond, finely ground

  • 2 cups homemade cream of mushroom soup, homemade or store-bought

  • 2 cups cream of chicken soup, homemade or store-bought

  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 1 cup brown rice, rinsed

  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, grated

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, sautéed (optional)

  • 2 lbs. chicken breast, boneless and skinless

  • Salt and pepper
