"Not bad. Definitely didn't love it as others. I thought the sauce was really good and might be good as a marinade for grilled chicken."

"Very delicious. I may add a little salt to the flour mixture next time. The chicken was tender and juicy combined with the crunch of the almond breading. The sauce compliments this with tangy and sweet flavor. Will definitely make again."

"When I made this recipe for dinner tonight, I added a little salt to the flour/almond mixture and I wasn't sure about the sauce because it smelled very strong. Boy, was I in for a surprise! My very picky husband, 9-yr-old son and I just LOVED it!!!! The sauce has a slightly teriyaki flavor, but not as strong and the almonds on the chicken are perfect! We made it with wild rice and corn. We will definitely be making it again real soon!"
