    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. In a medium, nonreactive bowl, blend Dijon mustard, honey, vegetable oil, and lemon juice. Place chicken in the mixture, stirring to coat. Cover, and, turning occasionally, allow to marinate in the refrigerator at least 1 hour.
    2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil grate. Soak wooden skewers in water for about 20 minutes.
    3. Thread chicken onto skewers. Arrange on the prepared grill, and cook 7 to 10 minutes, until no longer pink and juices run clear. Brush chicken occasionally with remaining marinade while cooking.
    4. Remove skewers from heat, and quickly roll in the almonds to lightly coat chicken. Discard remaining marinade mixture.

    This is an excellent recipe. The chicken was flavoursome and tender and the toasted almonds added a wonderful texture. I used a high quality dijon mustard which I think this dish needs in order to produce the wonderful flavour. Thank you for sharing Jessica!  -  04 Feb 2003  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I make a very similar recipe in a pan with a few changes. Add soy sauce and garlic salt to the marinade. Plus, I use olive oil, which is healthier.  -  11 May 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good recipe! I marinated the chicken 8 hours before cooking. It is a very light flavor of marinade. If you are looking for something strong, this is not it. But I found the combination of the marinade & the crunchy almonds to be very delicious. The flavors are so different, but really complement each other. Cook time is longer than recipe states, though.  -  17 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
