Diane Hopson Smith
I found this recipe in my "Southern Living Easy Weeknight Favorites" and it has certainly become a favorite for our family. The vevelty texture and the flavors of the cream, orange marmalade, red pepper and dijon mustard are addicting! Can't get enough.
Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Toasted Almond Chicken - Dee Dee's
- Melt 1 1/2 T butter in skillet over med-high heat. Add half of chicken and cook 2 min per side or until golden. Remove chicken and repeat with remaining chicken and butter. NOTE: I normally cook for 2, so I reduce the butter when I cook less than 6 breast. But, I don't reduce the amount of the sauce. Can't get enough of this sauce!
