"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
3 large boned and skinned breast halves
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper

3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions:
Slice chicken breasts “sideways”, decreasing the thickness by half. Cover the chicken with plastic wrap to contain any splattering, and pound with a meat mallet to an even thickness of about ¼ inch. Cut into serving size pieces and sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

Melt butter in heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook approximately 2 minutes on each side, until golden. Remove from skillet.

Reduce heat to medium. Add whipping cream, marmalade, Dijon mustard and red pepper to the skillet, stirring well. Add chicken back to the skillet and cook about 8 minutes or until sauce thickens. Sprinkle with toasted almonds .

This is best served with rice or crusty bread to soak up the yummy sauce. Serves 6.

*Sliced almonds may be toasted in a dry skillet on the stove top or toasted in the oven at 350 degrees for a few minutes. Watch carefully so as not to burn them.

Personal Notes:
The sauce on this chicken is “to die for”, and its so easy to make that it is downright embarrassing. This is my Go-To dish when I am expecting company but don’t have a lot of time to cook. I found this recipe in a Southern Living cookbook and “tweaked” it a little to make it my own.
