Chicken/Turkey Almondzini

Carol Davis


Found this recipe back in 1981 in a magazine. It was perfect for leftover Thanksgiving turkey. It became a family favorite. Then I lost the recipe. I found it on-line recently and made it last week. I've modified it for modern packaging amounts. Very yummy. Enjoy.
