healthy almond baked chicken

This is one of my favourite weeknight recipes.  It’s from a great cook book called “Delicious Detox” by a Naturopath named Carol Morley.  It’s gluten free, dairy, soy, corn and sugar free.  It’s simple to make and you can whip it together on a rushed Wednesday night  for the whole family.  The chicken and almonds pack a ton of protein and any left overs taste fantastic on a salad for tomorrows lunch.  I hope you enjoy this addition to your weekly dinners as much as my family does!
