Almond Chicken

If you have never tried almond chicken Chinese style than you haven`t tasted Chinese at all. This is one of the primary dish that reflects Chinese cooking at its maximum just like pasta or spaghetti for Italian dishes. Honestly I can`t think of anything better than almond chicken when it comes to Chinese recipes. I know there are tons of other dishes as well but trust me this is a dish in its own level. Not only is it healthy and is a perfect replacement for your other wise healthy lunch meal it tastes divine. I can`t think of anything else that a person would want after he has a satisfied belly and palates after his healthy lunch meal of almond chicken. Trust me it is that good. If you are a Chinese food lover like me than you`ll know what I am talking about. Any ways enjoy this almond chicken recipe.
