Almond Crusted Chicken

I tried this chicken a long time ago when my sweet neighbor made it. I was in LOVE with the taste, but I forgot to get the recipe from her when I moved! I finally combined a few of our recipes together and came up with this almond chicken, which is as close as I could get! I just love how easy it is, and the almonds add the perfect crunch to the crust!
