For chicken:
  • Place each breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Lightly pound each chicken piece into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick.

  • In a bowl, beat egg and milk together. Place almonds in a shallow dish. Dip each piece of chicken into the egg mixture. Coat both sides with almonds, pressing the nuts gently into chicken.

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil. Cook the chicken, 2 pieces at a time, over medium heat for 10 to 12 minutes or until almond coating is golden brown and chicken no longer is pink. Turn chicken once halfway through cooking time. Place chicken on a baking sheet; top each piece with a slice of Brie.

  • Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cheese is softened. Remove from oven. Place one piece of chicken, cheese side up, on each plate. Top each serving with warm Raspberry Sauce. Garnish with orange peel, if you like. Makes 4 servings.
