Rosemary Chicken With Almonds

To a Southerner, there’s nothing that compares to fried food!

There’s not much to say about this dish except that it is GOOD.  It’s official name is “Chicken Almondine”, that’s just a fancy way to say “chicken with almonds”.  The main spice for this recipe is rosemary, which my son used to call “sticks”.  He would tell me he liked the chicken but he didn’t like the “sticks”, then he would attempt eat the chicken without any “sticks”. Now that he’s older (and I used crushed rosemary) he eats it… “sticks and all”.

I almost always make this with white rice (another Southern staple), green beans and biscuits. Biscuits are a must with ANY kind of fried chicken and if a few almonds happen to make their way into the rice, well, that’s just a bonus.  

Here’s the Recipe: 

Rosemary Chicken with Almonds…ingredients listed in printable card below

rosemary chicken cooking almonds

Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet and “roast” almonds over medium heat, stirring frequently, until golden brown

Almonds get off to a slow start when cooking but be careful, they can burn fast

Rosemary Chicken almonds

Remove from skillet and drain on paper towels

Try to keep any kitchen “helpers” from eating the almonds before dinner

rosemary chicken spices

Combine dry ingredients in a shallow dish

Heat remaining butter and oil in skillet

Dredge chicken in flour mixture and place in skillet

Brown both sides of chicken while oil is hottest, then lower heat slightly to finish cooking, turning as needed to prevent burning

Sometimes I let everyone put on their own almonds at the table.

It’s easy enough for a weeknight family dinner but fancy enough to serve company!
