  • add   2 eggs
  • add   1/4 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • add   1 1/2 cups milk
  • add   1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • add   1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • add   4 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • add   1/4 cup orange juice
  • add   1/3 cup orange marmalade

  1. Place 1/2 cup flour in a shallow bowl. In another bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Place the almonds in a third bowl. Coat chicken with flour, then dip in eggs and roll in almonds. In a skillet over medium-high heat, cook the chicken in 2 tablespoons butter on both sides until juices run clear, about 10 minutes. Remove and keep warm.
