California Chicken and Almond Rice
Submitted by Chris Lowe
This is the best chicken ever!!!
8 chicken breasts ...skinless and boneless
2/3 cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. Each: celery salt, garlic salt and nutmeg
1/4 cup melted butter
Mix dry ingredients; Dredge chicken in flour and then fry in melted butter until browned. Place in greased roasting pan.
Then a sauce will be made to cover chicken with.
1 cup pineapple juice
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tbsp. sugar
Mix together and pour over the cooked chicken.
Make rice dish now so that it can be cooked at the same time as the chicken.
Combine in a greased casserole dish:
1 1/2 cup long grain rice
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/4 tsp. salt
Rice is cooked with a lid on the dish.
Chicken is cooked uncovered and basted every 15 minutes.
Bake both for 60 minutes in 350º oven.
Just before serving rice stir in 3/4 cups of slivered almonds that have been sautéed in 3 tbsp. butter until golden brown.
The work is well worth it!
