As usual, the summer has flown by and here we are in September. It is back to school time for kids of all ages and their parents as well. This month we have chosen a recipe from our new cookbook Mom’s Very Best Recipes. This chicken dish will delight your tastebuds as well as your pocketbook. Serve this easy to prepare dish with a vegetable or salad and you will be off and running into the busy autumn season.

Almond Chicken

1/3 c. soy sauce
1 t. garlic powder
3 lbs. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
1/2 c. whole-wheat flour
1/2 c. almonds, finely chopped
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
2 T. corn oil
cooked rice or lo mein noodles

Combine soy sauce and garlic powder in a large bowl; add chicken. Let stand for about 20 minutes; drain. In a separate bowl, combine flour, almonds, salt and pepper. Add chicken to flour mixture; toss to coat lightly. Heat oil in a wok or large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add chicken mixture and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook, stirring often, for about 20 minutes, until chicken juices run clear. Serve over cooked rice or noodles. Makes 8 servings.

Back in 1984, Vickie Hutchins and Jo Ann Martin were next-door neighbors raising their families in the little town of Delaware, Ohio. They were two moms with small children looking for a way to do what they loved and stay home with the kids too. They shared a love of home cooking and making memories with family & friends. After many a conversation over the backyard fence, Gooseberry Patch was born.

Today, Gooseberry Patch is best known for its home style family-friendly cookbooks. With more than 200 titles and nearly 9 million copies in print, plus a new collection of e-Books, Gooseberry Patch has grown from a kitchen-table operation to a nationally recognized best-selling publisher.
