"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."

  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...

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 mi...

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...

We like spicy food, so we sprinkle additional red pepper flakes on top - SOOOO good! Sauce needs some additional salt, but all in all, we like this! We also used half-and-half instead of the whi...

It's a good idea with great ingredients, but I think it needs more marmalade. I practically doubled the amount & I think I should have tripled it. Red pepper flakes were a nice touch, as well ...

Not what I expected at all...it was very blah and not good.

My boyfriend and I loved this! I did substitute walnuts instead of almonds, because that's what I had on hand, but so good!

huge hit with my boyfriend

Not that flavorful. Need to add more red pepper or something. Also need to let the mixture sit for 10 min after turning off stove. Sauce needs to thicken. Need to try again.
