Almond Chicken

Brandi Kirkpatrick


I LOVE Chinese food, but sometimes struggle with eating it at restaurants. So, I invested in a Chinese cook book and am working through it. I added a few things to this recipe and it was fabulous.
I served this with baked egg rolls and minute rice, but it was filling enough on it's own!
