September is National Honey Month and National Chicken Month
My story today has no relation to the recipe. Instead, I thought I would share with you these two photos from 1 year ago.
Does anyone recognize these? One year ago, I started my first full-time job. Y’all, I had no idea what I was getting into. All I knew was that I needed a job, and PIU needed help in the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. A lot has changed since then. I switched offices (and went from having endless shelves to having no shelves), I bit a hole through the straw in the pictured Pine Cove water bottle, I started grad school, I moved into my first apartment, and I attended an I.E. conference in Florida.
It’s been a good year…now let’s eat some good chicken.
- 1/2 cup almonds
- 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
- In a food processor, coarsely chop almonds (for me, this was about 50 quick pulses plus 30 seconds).
- Slice chicken into strips. Roll each strip in almond crumbs.
- Coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Arrange chicken on baking sheet and drizzle with honey. Bake chicken for 30 minutes, flipping once.
- Let cool, eat, and enjoy!
