This is one of our favorite chicken dishes. The coating gets really crunchy, while the inside stays nice and juicy. You can use plain bread crumbs and add in your own seasonings, as well. Herb roasted potatoes and sautéed green beans go perfectly with the chicken making a quick and simple weeknight meal.
1-1/2 cups sliced almonds
3/4 cup Italian style bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon water
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
-In a food processor or blender, process the almonds until finely chopped. Place in a shallow bowl.
-In another bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
-In a third bowl, beat the eggs and water.
-Coat chicken with crumb mixture, then dip in egg mixture and roll in almonds.
-Place on a greased baking sheet and bake at 400° for 20-25 minutes or until juices run clear.
