Last week my boys were having bananas and almond butter as an after school snack and they asked if we could have almond butter with supper. I was already planning to make chicken but had planned on Chicken Feta Bruschetta. I love when the boys are involved in meal planning so I quickly agreed that including almond butter would be a great idea and through this recipe together. It was a huge winner all around and I decided it was definitely one worth sharing so here it is!
Ingredients (per 6-8 servings)
6-8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 cup low sodium chicken broth (or water)
1/2 cup natural almond butter
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tsp. tumneric
1 tsp. garlic powder
- Mix broth, almond butter, soy sauce, honey, and spices altogether.
- Place chicken in an oven safe dish and pour mixture over chicken. You may also wish to add a little extra broth or water around the edge of the pan for extra moisture.
- Cover chicken with lid or foil and bake at 375F for about 35-45 minutes (until chicken is cooked through and juices run clear.)
- Serve with any sides your family enjoys and put any leftovers away for quick and way lunches or suppers later in the week.
