Spanish chicken with almond sauce

Wow, when was the last time I posted a poultry dish in the blog? I bet a long time. This Spanish chicken is the bomb.

Anyhow, while I work on my e-book I managed to make this dish that I actually used to love, and still do, while growing up. Granted it was really yummy but I think my unties used to make a better job than me!!

My family enjoyed this dish quite a bit. For once, because I hardly make poultry or meat dishes, and second, well, it was just really tasty!

You can use this sauce for meatballs or even fish. I think it will go great with any type of protein of your choice. Next time I am going to use the sauce with fish. I am more of a fish eater.

I am even thinking of making extra sauce next time and storing it in the freezer and then use it for another round when ever suitable because I really like the flavor of the sauce.

Anyhow, it is really getting cold out here in NJ so if you are in the east cost, bundle up and stay warm.


Place oil and bread cut into pieces into the same skillet you used to brown the chicken.  Brown the bread for a minute or so. Add the almond flour and garlic and cook further for another minute. Then add the wine and cook for another 1-2 minutes.

Here you can see the chicken on the first step when it got browned. The right picture is the chicken and mushrooms being added to the almondsauce.
