Smile Almond Dijon Chicken

YUM!! I use the leftovers for my lunch salad the next day.

3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, halved
3 Tbs. Butter Spread (I can't believe or Benecal (sp?)
3 Tbs. Dijon Mustard
1/2 Cup crushed or chopped almonds

Mix butter and dijon together in a flat dish and coat chicken with mixture. Sprinkle almonds on top.
Bake at 375 for about 1/2 hour, until the juices run clear, or the chicken has no sign of pink.

Serves 6

You can also do this in the morning and let it sit, covered, in the baking dish in the fridge so it marinates a bit more...

I made this for dinner last night using pecans instead of almonds. It was great!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?

Do we have to use the "I can't believe it's not butter" spread? I usually use Smart Balance (and credit it for helping my cholesterol go down)...would that work, too?

Thanks for this great recipe!

I made this last night. It was really good, thank you. Very different to the "cheesy" recipes that I've mainly been having.

I made this tonight and it was so good. I loved the taste of the nuts and the chicken was very moist. I used olive oil instead of icbinob spread because it's what I had, but it turned out really well. I agree with Linky that it was a nice change from cheesy dishes.

Default Chicken breasts, halved

Please forgive my ignorance, but could someone help me understand the "3 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, halved" part?

Is this 3 chicken breasts as they usually are sold (as in already halves) or does it mean to cut each of those in half to make 6 thinner pieces?
