I LOVE this chicken. Love it, love it, love it! The name sounds pretty fancy, but it really is a simple dish to make. I am a big fan of almonds. I think they are so great in flavor. They are also very healthy for us. Their packed with Vitamins B and E, calcium, potassium and iron among other vital nutrients our bodies need. Just a handful a day will provide you with almost your daily need of protein! Pretty neat, huh! I bet you didn’t think you were going to get a health lesson today, did ya? lol Oh, and I believe this chicken would be great without the lemon sauce. It definitley is not needed to make it tasty! But it sure is good with it too! You be the judge : )

Almond crusted is my favorite – either savory dish or desserts. And I like you eat this dish with lemon sauce too! I like this kind of dish that looks fancy but it’s actually easy to prepare. Thank you for sharing!
Mmmm Lemon! Love it! Great pics!
That looks wonderful. I love lemon, and chicken is the meat of choice at our house. I’ll have to add this to the recipe collection.
Oh, YUM! This looks like the perfect weeknight dinner…simple and delicious. I’ve done a pecan crust with chicken…so I can imagine how lovely this is with almonds 🙂
I love almonds too. This chicken looks great, thanks for sharing. No really, thanks for sharing. I’ll be over to pick up my portion soon, or you can send it 🙂
LOOKS SUPERB! PERFECT DISH TO IMPRESS GUESTS
I love lemon chicken and this recipe looks just fantastic. I cannot wait to make it.
This looks SO good!! I love the combo of chicken and lemon, they just go so perfectly together! Yum!
I know you made this for me and my invite got lost!!!! I will try this over the weekend! My sister is coming and I’m in panic mode! Haven’t seen her for 3 yrs.
Hi, Holly! You are so good to encourage me whenever I post! Thank you so much!! And we eat quite a bit of chicken and this looks fabulous!!
That sounds incredible! I bet it would be really a really, really good crust on some flaky white fish too. Yum!
That chicken sounds really yummy. I love almonds and I’ve never tried them with chicken. It looks good!
I have got to try that sauce. It never occurred to me to put something like that on a breaded chicken. Sounds amazing.
I love how this came out…it looks so moist and tasty! Great recipe, again…!

Happy weekend! Don’t forget to come over and share a recipe at Savory Sunday!!
I have made this twice now, and it’s one of our favorite dishes. I do everything just as written except I use crushed Ritz crackers instead of bread crumbs. I am not a very good cook, but my daughter is telling me I’m definitely improving with this dish. We love the sauce on top and the almonds. Thank you so much for posting this recipe.
Myla, that is so great to hear! Glad you like the recipe 🙂
I made this for dinner last night and it was delish! I didn’t make any adjustments to the recipe BUT instead of pounding the chicken I sliced two big chicken breasts in half which worked out perfectly. I also wish I had doubled the lemon sauce because I think it just added so much flavor.
Will definitely be making again…two thumbs up! 🙂
