Brown sugar and balsamic vinegar lend a sweet and subtly tangy flavor to this tender almond-crusted chicken dish. Lisa Ruehlow - Blaine, MN

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine almonds and flour. In another shallow bowl, whisk eggs. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness. Dip chicken in eggs; then coat with almond mixture. In a large skillet, cook chicken in oil over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  2. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the cornstarch, broth, vinegar and brown sugar until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Serve with chicken.
