      Made this exactly to recipe specifications. Did double the almond and cornstarch mixture and was glad I did otherwise I wouldn't have had enough. Served it with Mean Chef's Perfect Rice Everytime #53520. Made some chicken gravy also so it was like the almond chicken in Chinese restaurants. Very good, although with the deep frying, I would eat it in moderation.

      The recipe doesn't tell you how thickly to slice the chicken - as a result, I sliced mine pretty thinly, and quickly ran out of the coating. I got a few nicely coated and cooked pieces, though, and got an okay photo of them which I've uploaded. I think that using a food processor to finely chop the almonds could be a good idea. If you don't chop them finely enough, they won't stick well. The marinade could use some more flavor. I think that some minced green onion and garlic would help. And freshly ground black pepper. The recipe is good. I think with more edits and additional flavor it could be a 5-star recipe! :)
