While I am new to cooking I found this recipe easy and it tastes great. Use about 1/2 the almond paste and don't have the pan too hot when you cook the breasts. I will make this again.

Such a good boneless chicken recipe. A nice different touch. I had to substitute flour and almond extract for the almond paste, still turned out very tasty.

I combine this recipe with the amaretto chicken also on the site. i follow this recipe to step 3. then i use i cup heavy cream, 1 cup shredded gruyere cheese, and 1/2 a cup of amaretto and melt on the stove top. then i pour this sauce over the chicken and put in oven at 350 for 40 minutes. i serve it with linguine.
