Freezer meals: Almond Chicken

I shared this recipe at a church function and it was well received. I found the recipe in a church produced cookbook from Beaverton, OR. The recipe is similar to one from the great freezer meal company Dream Dinners. For convenience and gourmet taste, Dream Dinners is great.

Almond Chicken

6 chicken breasts (frozen is cheapest and convenient but fresh is ok)
3 eggs, beaten
1/2 c sliced almonds
2 c bread crumbs (I prefer Panko bread crumbs)
black pepper to taste

Place frozen chicken breasts in a freezer gallon size. Add beaten to eggs to chicken bag. Seal bag. In another quart sized bag, place bread crumbs, almonds and pepper. Seal crumb bag. Place the 2 sealed bags inside a 3 gallon sized bag for storage. Freeze.

Thaw in fridge when ready to use.
Drain excess egg from chicken.
Dredge chicken in bread crumb mix.
Place in a greased 9x13 baking dish
Bake 30 mins at 350'
