Chicken Almendrado



  • 1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon ground red chiles
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 boneless chicken breast halves
  • Slivered almonds (garnish)


  1. Cook and stir onion in butter and oil in a 10-inch skillet until tender. Stir in broth, the 1/4 cup almonds, the ground red chiles, vinegar, sugar and cinnamon. Heat to boiling; reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Spoon mixture into a blender container, cover and blend on low speed until smooth, about 1 minute. Return sauce to skillet. Dip chicken breasts into the sauce to coat both sides. Place skin sides up in a single layer in the skillet. Heat to boiling and then reduce the heat, cover and simmer until done, about 45 minutes.
  3. Serve sauce over chicken and sprinkle with the remaining slivered almonds.

Yield: 4 servings
