  1. To Make Sauce: Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Saute garlic for 2 minutes, then add the tomato, orange, rosemary, thyme, salt and pepper and stir together. Cover and cook over medium heat for 15 minutes; remove cover and let sauce reduce for an additional 15 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. To Make Crusted Chicken: In a shallow dish or bowl, mix together the almonds, flour, cumin, curry powder, turmeric, 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Coat breasts in flour mixture and fry in a large skillet with 1/4 cup oil and clarified butter for about 5 to 7 minutes each side, or until golden brown and cooked through (juices run clear).
  3. When ready to serve, place chicken on a platter and top with warm sauce; do this right before serving, to retain crispiness of the chicken.

I fixed this recipe for my girlfriend on Valentine's Day and she absolutely loved it. The seasonings are delicious. The dish is pretty easy to make and done well, this dish is superb.

Good and tasty, though not as tangy as i would have hoped. Still, very heartening and I looked like a gourmet - way to impress the roommates!

This is one of the most wonderful chicken dishes I have ever had! I made it for our anniversary last night, and both my husband and I LOVED it. I double-coated the chicken and dunked it in butt...

The ground almond is a nice coating for the chicken, and the dill makes the sauce smell very nice. However, the amount of the spices is so little that their flavor really didn't come through at...

The smells, the texture, the taste-all fabulous. I had an abundance of fresh spinach in my fridge so chopped it up and threw it in the sauce at the last minute-healthy AND yummy!

This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes. I have prepared it several times over the last few years at my family's request.

My friend Zac and my dad really enjoyed this dish when I prepared it. The only negative thing I can think of is that the preparation is a little complex. Really tasty!
