The coating for the chicken is WONDERFUL. However, I had some trouble with the sauce - cooking it for the recommended time on medium for so long made it quite blackened. But it was delicious without the sauce too.
This recipe has some different combinations of flavors that sounded interesting, but didn't really work for me. The sauce had an odd flavor and I didn't think it went with the chicken at all. If I make this again I will not make the sauce, the chicken coating is flavorful enough in itself. I will also not fry it on the stovetop again as the chicken turned out really oily (so did the sauce). I think it would be just as good done in the oven as I have a similar recipe that cooks the chicken in the oven at 350 for about 50 minutes.
I fixed this recipe for my girlfriend on Valentine's Day and she absolutely loved it. The seasonings are delicious. The dish is pretty easy to make and done well, this dish is superb.
Good and tasty, though not as tangy as i would have hoped. Still, very heartening and I looked like a gourmet - way to impress the roommates!
This is one of the most wonderful chicken dishes I have ever had! I made it for our anniversary last night, and both my husband and I LOVED it. I double-coated the chicken and dunked it in buttermilk to get the coating to stick. I am definitely going to make this again. It was wonderful! Kudos to you, Justin Parrott!
The ground almond is a nice coating for the chicken, and the dill makes the sauce smell very nice. However, the amount of the spices is so little that their flavor really didn't come through at all. Still, it does offer a nice presentation, and I agree that it looks very gourmet.
The smells, the texture, the taste-all fabulous. I had an abundance of fresh spinach in my fridge so chopped it up and threw it in the sauce at the last minute-healthy AND yummy!
This is one of my favorite "go to" recipes. I have prepared it several times over the last few years at my family's request.
