This Paleo Almond Butter Crusted Chicken is anything but average. I’ve added JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter in the marinade to complement the chicken. I also use almond meal instead of bread crumbs and I promise you, the taste isn’t compromised. My family loves this recipe for dinner, and I think yours will too!
