Honey Almond Crusted Chicken
Recipe by: Amy Clevenger, fitfunandfantastic.com
– 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
– 1/2 cup Sliced Almonds
– 1/2 – 1 tsp Red Pepper Flakes(depending on how hot you want it)
– Salt & Pepper, to taste
– Honey, for drizzling.
Preheat the oven to 375F. Cover a baking sheet with tinfoil sprayed with non-stick spray, set aside. Place sliced almonds, red pepper, salt and pepper into a blender/food processor. Pulse until the sliced almonds and red pepper flakes become a bit of a finer texture. Place this mixture on a plate and roll each chicken breast on both sides in the coating mixture. Place the chicken breasts on the baking sheet and drizzle each piece with honey. Bake for approximately 35-40 minutes or until chicken is cooked. Eat up!
NOTE: Don’t have slice almonds? Slivered or whole almonds should work too!
