      I needed to use a little more oil - and I did broil them. Better than I expected 👍

          Hi, the recipe calls for 1 pound of chicken which is divided into four servings. You should be able to dice around 7 pieces of chicken breast per person.

        My husband has made these with crushed almonds once and with almond flour the next time. I prefer the crushed almonds because it gives it more if a crunch. Both ways were really good. The almond flour definitely made it a quicker meal.
