Oven-Fried Almond Chicken

It’s been a while since I’ve put up a recipe because it’s been a while since I’ve had time to cook, let alone trying something new that excited me. But my parents passed along a recipe that was both easy and delicious.

Mix up the following to make breading:

  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/8 cup (1/2 ounce) Parmesan cheese
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped almonds
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 clove crushed garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • pinch ground black pepper

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Take a pound of boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut them in half, and flatten them to about 1/2 inch thick. (Or use chicken tenders.)

Dip the chicken into olive oil, then the crumb mixture. Put in a shallow baking pan and bake for 25 minutes. That’s it! Delicious with a green salad and a side dish (I chose corn in butter sauce). Best of all, it uses items I always have in the house, so it’s great for last-minute dinner.
