    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 4 tbsp plain flour
    • paprika and/or mace
    • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets, about 125g each
    • 50g slivered or flaked almonds
    • 2 tbsp olive oil or 25g unsalted butter

    Method
    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:11min  ›  Ready in:16min 

    1. Season 4 tbsp plain flour, adding a generous pinch of paprika and/or mace. Roll 4 skinless chicken breast fillets, about 125g each, in the flour until well coated. Heat a dry frying pan and toast 50g slivered or flaked almonds until golden. Shake the pan and stir the almonds frequently so that they do not burn – they will brown in 2-3 minutes. Remove from the pan. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil or 25g unsalted butter in the pan and cook the chicken over a medium heat for about 4 minutes on each side or until browned and cooked through. Serve sprinkled with the almonds, and with lemon wedges for their juice.

    Nice and easy - especially since I'm a novice at cooking chicken. (I mostly stick to the veg...) I decided to mix the toasted almonds in with the rice and peas that I served it with. - 02 Feb 2012
