Make

  1. Combine almond flour, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  2. Heat a skillet with cooking oil over medium heat.
  3. Coat each piece of chicken in almond flour mixture, shaking off any excess. Place chicken in heated oil and cook on both sides until golden brown, ~2 minutes per side.
  4. Set chicken aside and return pan to heat. Add apricot glaze and bring to a simmer. Simmer, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan, until sauce thickens slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add chicken back to pan and turn to coat in glaze. Continue cooking in glaze until cooked through, ~3 minutes more.
  6. Just before serving, toss figs, cheese, mixed greens and almonds in balsamic vinaigrette.
  7. Serve chicken with salad on the side. Enjoy!
