Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 cup unsalted almonds, toasted
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    3/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
    1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
    3/4 teaspoon dried rosemary
    1 garlic clove
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    4 (4 to 5 ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 425 F

In a food processor, place the almonds, olive oil, lemon zest and juice, rosemary, garlic, and salt. Process until coarsely chopped; the mixture will be a thick paste.

Arrange the chicken breast halves in a baking dish. Divide the almond paste and spread on the breasts; pat down to cover each breast completely.

Roast in the oven until cooked through and an instant-read thermometer reads 165 to 170, about 10 minutes. Loosely tent with foil and let stand for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
