Chicken with Almonds

This recipe is one that I have been after for many years. It was written in a cookbook, then ripped out and placed in another, then it was misplaced and lost forever. Then one day, I was in the kitchen, about to fix up some Spicy Chicken Manchurian, when I decided I was going to attempt making Chicken with Almonds from memory. I vaguely remembered my mom making it, and with just half of the ingredients in mind, I began mixing and experimenting with sauces until I had my “Aha!” moment, and it was definitely worth the effort! I’m sure it’s not exactly the same recipe, considering the array of ingredients I used that my mom never did, but it tastes just like it, and that’s more than good enough for me! This recipe is so simple to pull together, as all my recipes are, and I promise you, if you have all your ingredients out in front of you, this will come together in 15-20 minutes. That’s a weeknight meal miracle, isn’t it? So here’s it is, Chicken with Almonds, in all it’s glory. ..
