Almond Crusted Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

Almond Crusted Chicken with Strawberry Balsamic Sauce

Tired of the same old chicken recipes all the time? I know I easily find myself there so I’m always on the look out for new exciting chicken recipes. We eat chicken more than any other type of meat/protein at my house. It’s healthy, it’s inexpensive and my whole family can agree on it. Also, it’s easy to jazz it up. Yes “jazz”, I don’t know if I’ve heard that word since the 90’s. But folks we’re jazzing up chicken today! All it takes are some basic ingredients you likely have on hand to create a dish that’s worthy of serving to guests.

Ingredients

  • 2 (10 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup sliced almonds, coarsely ground
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh rosemary or 1 tsp dried, crushed
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 8 tsp canola oil, divided
  • 1 tsp canola oil
  • 1/4 cup diced shallot
  • 1/3 cup strawberry preserves (use a less sugar jam for a less sweet sauce, if desired)
