Chicken with Almond Cream and a Spicy Carrot Salad

Posted 2017-07-19 by finyfollow

This fried chicken had the most delicious sauce made of almonds, cream and other spices.

I cooked the chicken just for a few minutes and it was "melt in your mouth" tender.

Preparation Time: 25 minutes
Cooking Time: 30 minutes
Serves: 3

Ingredients
For the chicken
2 large chicken breasts (about 450 g)
Flour
Egg, beaten
Breadcrumbs mixed with grated cheese
Butter
For the sauce
30 g sliced almonds
½ tsp garlic, crushed
½ tsp ginger
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp dry white wine
1 chicken stock cube
½ cup cream
½ tsp French mustard
For the carrot salad
400 g medium carrots, peeled
½ clove garlic
30 ml lemon juice
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp paprika
¼ tsp hot sauce
¼ tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
¼ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp sugar
Olive oil
Parsley, chopped

Method
For the carrot salad
  • Chop the carrots, and cook the carrots with the garlic in a pan of boiling water until they are just tender - about 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Drain.

  • Mix the lemon juice, sugar and spices, and combine well.

  • Pour over the carrots, tossing them so they are well coated.

  • Serve hot or cold, and garnish with the parsley just before serving.


  • For the chicken
  • Cut the chicken into pieces, and pound until each piece is thin.

  • Coat them with the flour, dip in the egg, and coat with the breadcrumbs.

  • Fry in butter until almost done - this is only a few minutes each side. Keep them warm while you make the sauce.


  • For the sauce
    Cook the almonds in some butter until they turn golden.
    Almonds could be a bit smaller than I cut them


  • Add the garlic, ginger, lemon juice, wine and stock cube.

  • Stir until the mixture boils.

  • Reduce the heat, add the cream and mustard, and stir.


  • Spoon over the chicken, and serve with the carrots or a salad/vegetables.
