If you know anything about me, you know that I love food. I love to cook. Love to eat. The whole shebang. One of my favorites to make for friends is this recipe Chicken with Savory Almond Butter Sauce. I make the sauce with JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter, sliced mushrooms, and shallots—which are like garlicky onions. It gives it an amazing flavor that everyone at your party is sure to remember.
