“This chicken is filled with flavor and very elegant looking. It always brings raves from my husband, a man not prone to rave about food, since he is an excellent cook himself. Serve the chicken with hot rice and top with sauce.”

Original recipe yields 6 servings

Directions

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the almonds, and cook until light brown and toasted, about 4 minutes.
  2. Place the chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper; flatten using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium meat; add the chicken breasts, and cook 1 minute on each side. Combine 1/2 cup almonds, cream, Dijon mustard, marmalade, and red pepper flakes with chicken, stirring to blend. Cook until sauce thickens, about 10 minutes. Serve chicken topped with sauce and remaining almonds.

I am a beginner when it comes to cooking and this was really easy to make! I did substitute orange marmalade for apricot preserves, and I left out the red pepper. I also doubled the preserves to take away the mustard taste. It came out perfect! I will definitely make this again. Thanks!!

I forgot the mustard which made it "too sweet with an unanticipated aftershock of spice" for my husband. I think it was a nice subtle sweet/spicy flavor. Mine thickened up nicely in about 5-7 minutes. I'm thinking about using it as a barbeque recipe without the cream, perhaps over a salad.

Not one of my favorites. It sounded great, and was easy to make for the most part. I did add twice as much marmalade and mustard since the only flavoe it had was sweet and had to add corn starch to thicken. We ate it, but I will not make it again.
