If you can't find chicken tenderloins, look for thin cutlets which will work just as well for this recipe. source unknown

How to Make Almond crusted chicken and nectarines salad with b


  • 1in a medium bowl or liquid measuring cup, mix the buttermilk, sour cream, vinegar, and honey. Slowly whisk in the oil to blend. Stir in the chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • 2For the chicken, lightly beat the eggs in a wide, shallow dish. Pulse the almonds and flour together in a food processor until the almonds are chopped. Transfer the almond mixture to another wide, shallow dish. Season the chicken on all sides with 1 teaspoon salt and three-quarter teaspoon pepper.Dip one piece of chicken at a time in the eggs. Shake off the excess and dredge in the almond mixture, pressing lightly to help it adhere. Set aside on a wire rack.
  • 3In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil over medium heat until shimmering hot. Working in batches, cook the chicken until light Golden Brown on both sides and just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  • 4Transfer the chicken to a paper towel lined plate when done. Between batches, remove any stray almonds from the pan and add more oil if needed.
  • 5To assemble the salad, in a large bowl, toss the lettuce, arugula or both and the nectarines with about half of the dressing. Season to taste with salt and pepper and portion among four dinner plates. Arrange the chicken among the plates, overlapping the pieces on top of the salad. Drizzle more dressing over the chicken and serve. Serves four.
