Almond-Crusted Chicken
Ingredients
  • 4  skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (1 to 1-1/4 lb. total)
  • 1  egg, lightly beaten
  • 2  tablespoons  buttermilk
  • 1/2  cup  finely chopped almonds
  • 1/2  cup  panko (Japanese-style bread crumbs) or fine dry bread crumbs
  • 2  teaspoons  snipped fresh rosemary
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  • 1  tablespoon  peanut oil or canola oil
  • 1  shallot, chopped
  • 8  cups  fresh spinach leaves
  • 1/4  teaspoon  salt
  •  Freshly ground black pepper
  •  Fresh mint leaves (optional)
Directions

1. Place one chicken breast half between sheets of plastic wrap. With flat side of meat mallet, pound chicken to 1/4- to 1/2-inch thickness. Repeat with the remaining breast halves.

2. In shallow dish whisk together egg and buttermilk. In another shallow dish combine almonds, panko, rosemary, and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Dip chicken breasts, one at a time, in egg mixture, turning to coat. Allow excess to drip off, then dip chicken pieces in almond mixture, turning to coat.

3. In 12-inch nonstick skillet cook chicken, half at a time if necessary, in hot oil over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until no longer pink, turning once halfway through cooking. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.

4. In same skillet cook shallot in drippings 3 to 5 minutes or just until tender, stirring frequently. Add spinach and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook and toss about 1 minute or just until spinach is wilted. Serve chicken with wilted spinach. Sprinkle pepper and, if desired, mint.
