Seared Almond Chicken
Chicken breasts – easy to cook, easy to freeze. I know I’ve said it before, but I can’t help but repeat it!
Last night I was looking for something to cook for dinner. Just getting back from vacation this past Saturday, and getting ready to head out for a business trip this afternoon, our fridge is (basically) bare. So, at times like this, the freezer can be your best friend – as long as you stock it properly.
Typically you can find a good deal on a package of chicken breasts every couple of weeks, and when I see those lower prices, I buy a couple packs and freeze them, two breasts to a bag. Sometimes even the packs that come individually wrapped (talk about easy freezing!) are on sale for a dollar or two off! Buy them.
With cooking time under 15 fifteen minutes, chicken breasts are great for a busy weeknight. And, like you, I have a lot of those.

This sounds very similar to an almond-crusted tilapia I make (except I usually add some panko to the crushed almonds for a little extra crispiness). Also simple and delicious!

You’re so right – chicken breast is such a quick dinner. You can get it on the table in less than 20 minutes. Quicker than takeout. This looks just lovely.
@Molly – I bet that would be perfect with tilapia!
@Rivki – It’s totally quicker than takeout…not that I’m opposed to takeout now and again. 🙂
Made this tonight and it was a big hit! Plus, mine came out looking just like your picture! Will definitely make this again for company or just for us. Thanks!
@Patty – I’ll be making it again too. Loved the flavor…almost like fried chicken, but better. 🙂 Perfect for entertaining!
This looks amazing!!! I’m going to have to try this!!
Oooh! this looks so very good. I need to pin this for future (very soon!) use. Thanks for sharing!
Your pictures always look great. Chicken breast is a great staple to have on hand. I need to get better at catching the sales. Would it be weird to do a google alert on boneless skinless chicken breast???
