Classic Recipe for Chicken with Almonds
Updated: Jun 8, 2021
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.
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)
