  • 1 bunch asparagus, trimmed
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 cup Fisher® Chef’s Naturals Slivered Almonds
  • 1 pound skinless boneless chicken breasts

  1. In a large sheet pan, spread the asparagus out and drizzle with 1-2 tablespoons of the olive oil to coat. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Next, place the almonds on the pan, add 1 teaspoon of oil to coat, then roast at 400ᵒF for 10 minutes. Remove and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil until very hot.
  4. Add the chicken and begin to brown. Add the onion and garlic and sauté until tender — about 7-8 minutes.

  6. Toss in half of the almonds and place the hot rice on a warm platter.
  7. Top the rice with the chicken, arrange the roasted asparagus, drizzle the juices on top and garnish with the remaining almonds and mint.
