Do you have a favorite childhood recipe? While I have a lot of them, one of my top 5 was surely Almond Rice. My mother made it with Classic Cornish Hens and Breaded Chicken Breasts and I would literally eat myself silly when she made either dish.
When I got to college, I virtually lived off Almond Rice for at least 3 months. I supposed when I got to the point of being able to make it myself, I just couldn’t get enough. I also made it into a one-dish meal by adding shredded rotisserie chicken and frozen vegetables. I no longer eat it as frequently, but still thoroughly enjoy this crunchy dish. Almonds also have the health benefits of protein, vitamin E and calcium.
