Almond Chicken – tender and juicy chicken stir-fry with almonds, peas and carrots in Chinese brown sauce. So good and much better than takeout!
Almond chicken is one of the most popular Chinese recipes here in the United States. Much like its close cousin Cashew Chicken, silky smooth, juicy and tender chicken cubes are stir-fried in the savory Chinese brown sauce, with vegetables such as sugar snap peas (or snow peas), carrots, with lots of almonds.
I love almonds; they add an amazing texture and nutty flavors to the chicken. Every bite of the chicken is accompanied by the crunchy almonds. Together with the mouthwatering brown sauce, almond chicken is a perfect weeknight dinner dish that is filling and delicious.
The sweetest thing about this recipe is that it takes less than 20 minutes. The sauces can be found at the International aisle of regular supermarkets now so there is no need to go to Chinatown or Asian stores. Double up the portion if you have a big family. Make this tonight and I am sure you won’t get another takeout of Almond Chicken again!
