Almond Chicken

Type: Chicken, Poultry
Courses: Main Course
Serves: 4 people

Recipe Ingredients

4   Chicken breast halves - skinned, boned
1   Egg (large)
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlDried tarragon - crumbled
3/4 cup 69g / 2.4ozSliced almonds - finely minced
1/4 cup 36g / 1.3ozGrated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons 30mlOlive oil
2 tablespoons 30mlUnsalted butter
  Salt - to taste
  Freshly-ground white pepper - to taste
  Blanched almond flour - for dredging
  Lemon wedges - for serving

Recipe Instructions

Place chicken breast halves between two sheets of plastic wrap and lightly pound to an even 1/2-inch thickness.  In a shallow bowl, beat the egg and add the tarragon; season with salt and pepper.  On a plate, combine the minced almonds and Parmesan cheese.

Heat oil and butter in a skillet large enough to hold chicken pieces without them touching each other.  Dust the chicken breasts with almond flour and dip in egg and then in almond/cheese mixture to coat completely.  Immediately transfer them to the skillet and saute until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes per side. (To make sure that the chicken is cooked right through, cut into a piece. It should be pearly white, not pink in the middle.) Transfer to heated plates, season lightly with salt and pepper, garnish with lemon wedges.
