Really good recipe. The rice was a nice touch! I also served with steamed broccoli. Will definitely make again!

Sorry...not for me. Easy to make, but kind of boring.

I followed this recipe exactly. I wound up with chicken with burnt almonds on the outside, barely done on the inside. If for some reason I make this again I will put a large amount of cooking spray or olive oil on the pan before adding the chicken. The rice was great though!

Although I burnt the outside crust and it lacked a bit of flavor, but I've never had chicken that juicy. It was worth making and I will make it again and try not to burn it. I did not make it with the rice because it sounded very bland. I made wild mushroom couscous and roasted vegetables that I put in the oven with the chicken on a separate rack.

I got up from the dinner table to mix up a little horseradish/mayo/sourcream sauce, without it the flavor fell flat. But then again, every chicken almadine I've ever made has needed the sauce. Maybe I just like the sauce. I also cooked the chicken longer in the oven - more like 15 min.

I'm surprised this only got a 3-star rating. The chicken is juicy and tender. Following suggestion I used chicken breast tenders instead of chicken breast. I think it cooks better when it is in strips. 8 minutes in the oven cooks it perfectly when it's in strips. I didn't make the rice. Served it with cooked mixed vegetables. I have made this several times and everybody loves it! We are picky about our Cooking Light recipes too. You definitely have to make sure not to burn the crust, though - but it's not that hard to not burn it. It is definitely fast and easy, but it's messy! I make a honey-mustard sauce to go with the chicken by mixing equal parts of honey mustard (it helps if it's a sweeter variety) and low-fat mayonnaise. Delicious.

Delicious chicken with a moist center and a crisp crust.

This was just ok for me. Just using spray makes the breading get dark too quick in the pan so be careful of that. Needs zest, or herbs, or something? Probably won't make again, maybe if I'm in a pinch?
