With a couple of helpful tips under your belt you can make crispy, crushed almond chicken like a pro. I suggest that you crush the almonds and spices in a food processor until they’re small but not totally pulverized. You want small chunks of almonds, not ground almond powder.
Second make sure to press the coating onto the chicken with your hands, it helps with breading sticking to the chicken and not falling off during the baking process, it also infuses the chicken meat with the spice flavors. Lastly I recommend drizzling the chicken breasts with a little bit of olive oil before baking for the best golden color and to ensure even browning.
Almond chicken is delicious when served with your favorite paleo and Keto dipping sauces and a side of crispy fresh salad or vegetables. Follow the detailed steps below to make almond chicken.
