Almonds and honey flavor chicken cutlets for this quick dinner.
Boneless, skinless chicken cutlets are about 1/2-inch thick. They cook in just 4 to 5 minutes. To keep them juicy and flavorful, a sauce made with orange juice and thickened with honey coats the chicken.
You can also use boneless, skinless chicken breasts and flatten them with a meat bat or the bottom of a heavy pan to 1/2-inch thick.
A colorful side dish of zucchini strips and grape tomatoes tossed in olive oil and garlic completes the meal. It can be made quickly and easily in the microwave or on the stove top.
