Almond Butter Chicken
Sue of Palatable Pastime invites us each month to join her in a Potluck Party.  No themes, no rules just bring a dish and share it.  My kind of party.  Let's see what the other's brought........

Almond Butter Chicken

Rice is the perfect side dish for this meal as it is wonderful drenched in the sauce from this chicken.  I opened up a bottle of Albino Armani Pinot Grigio to pair with this meal and it was perfect.  This recipe and pairing is a great way to turn that ordinary chicken breast weeknight dinner into something special.

Tonight we are attending a dinner and auction for our Parish school.  Frank ordered the filet mignon and I ordered the mahi mahi.   I am looking forward to a nice evening together because tomorrow Amy and I are flying out to visit Chuck in Virginia.  

We will be returning home Wednesday afternoon and Frank will meet us at Amy's house so we can all go out to dinner before I head home.  

Thursday I will be prepping for the fish fry all day and we will probably grab dinner out afterwards or pickup carryout depending on how tired we are.  Friday we will be eating at the Fish Fry. menu for this week.  Frank will be providing for him and the Teen and Chuck is looking forward to making us meals in his newly remodeled kitchen.

Ready in less than half an hour, this delicious recipe is great for every occasion from family dinner to an elegant dinner party.
Prep time: 5 MinCook time: 20 MinTotal time: 25 Min


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 T. flour
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1/4 c. slivered almonds
  • 1/2 c. dry white wine
