Almond Crusted Chicken Breast

Almond Chicken


  • ½ cup unsalted almonds (I used almond flour, so I didn’t use a food processor.  I also added about 2 tablespoons of a natural bbq sauce to make up for the dryness.)
  • 1 garlic clove
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 teaspoon paprika (optional)
  • 2½ tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 organic boneless, skinless chicken breasts, halved (4 pieces total)


  1. Make a coarse paste with almonds, garlic, salt, paprika and olive oil in a food processor or blender.
  2. Rub onto chicken.  I chopped half of a white onion and mixed that in before rubbing on the chicken.
  3. Roast at 425 degrees in the oven until cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes.
