Reviews for Almond-Topped Chicken
"Didn't really enjoy this at all. I loved that it was quick, but it seemed unfinished. Sorry."
"easy and quick, I usually add more lemon than recipe calls for to give additional zing!!"
"As written it is a little bland. Definitely needs some seasoning. I went with salt pepper, paprika and just a touch of garlic powder."
