  • Rating ****

4 servings


  • 2/3 cup slivered almonds
  • 2 1/2 pounds chicken pieces: breast, legs, thighs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon herb pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon almond oil
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup julienned carrot
  • 1 cup sliced celery
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon basil
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread the almonds in a shallow pan. Toast for about 10 minutes or until the almonds are a light, golden brown, stirring once or twice; cool and set aside.

Combine the flour, seasoned salt, herb pepper and poultry seasoning in a shallow bowl. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Heat the butter and oil in 10-inch skillet. Brown the chicken on both sides and remove from the skillet; set aside.

Saute the rice, onions, carrots, celery and mushrooms until the vegetables are tender crisp, about 2 minutes. Stir in the basil, 1/3 cup almonds and the chicken broth. Place the browned chicken over the rice mixture. Bring to a boil; cover; turn the heat low and simmer 25 to 30 minutes or until the rice and chicken are tender. Sprinkle with the remaining 1/3 cup almonds and parsley to serve.
