My mom used to make this amazing almond-crusted chicken when I was little. It was usually an appetizer at a party, but I would fill my plate with them and could have it as my meal. I haven’t had it in a while and knew that it would be the perfect topping to my salad.
Stonyfield tasked us with creating a yogurt-based dressing to go along with Taylor Farms salad greens. So many options sprung through my head, and I had a hard time narrowing it down. I eat Taylor Farms quite often so coming up with a new salad took a little time thinking, and a little bit of craving.
I hadn’t had my mom’s almond chicken since childhood. Since I have a toddler (going on teenager), lately I have been thinking about all the delicious recipes my mom used to make for us as kids. I cook almost every night, but I want to cook more of the recipes I grew up with too. So, my mom and I made this chicken and I used it in my salad the next day. It is best when freshly made, but crisped up just fine in the oven too!
Homemade honey mustard is so easy to make. I had all the ingredients already in my pantry and whipped it up in less than 2 minutes. Homemade dressings are easy to make and it feels great knowing exactly what goes into them.
I love using Stonyfield Organic Yogurt in my dressings for that rich creamy texture. Greek yogurt is good for a dressing with body and when I want a tangy taste. Stonyfield’s Smooth & Creamy is also a great choice if you can’t find the Greek yogurt. I hope you try my almond chicken salad and homemade honey mustard yogurt dressing soon!
