How to Make Grandma's Almond Chicken

  1. The first step is to cut the vegetables. Cut the onion into julienne strips and the carrots into slices. We also cut the chicken breasts into pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the chicken pieces and cook until golden brown on all sides. We remove the chicken from the pan and set aside.
  4. In the same pan, add the raw almonds. Lightly toast them until they are slightly golden. We constantly remove to prevent them from burning. Next we remove the almonds from the pan and set aside.
  5. In the same pan, put the onion and carrot slices. We cook until they are tender and slightly caramelized.
  6. We put the chicken back in the pan and add the chicken broth. We mix all the ingredients well and let the broth boil and reduce a little.
  7. Turn the heat down to medium-low, cover the pan, and let the chicken simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until tender and cooked through.
  8. During cooking, we can add a little salt and pepper to taste.
  9. Once the chicken is cooked, add the toasted almonds to the pan and mix gently to blend all the flavors.
  10. We cook for an additional 2-3 minutes so that the flavors integrate.
  11. We serve the chicken with almonds hot accompanied by white rice or noodles.
  12. All we have to do is enjoy this recipe for chicken with almonds, a typical grandmother's recipe, with family or friends.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
