- 1/2 cup sliced almonds (or slivered almonds)

- 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary (crushed)
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
- 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
- 6 to 8 boneless chicken breast (halves, skin removed)

- 1 clove garlic (minced)

- With a slotted spoon or spatula, remove the chicken to a serving platter; keep warm. Bring juices to a boil; stir in reserved almonds. Taste and adjust seasonings.
- Spoon almond mixture over chicken. Serve with hot cooked rice, if desired.
