Chicken Beer Bake with Almonds

Sharing is caring!


Chicken Beer Bake with Almonds makes quick work of weeknight dinners. Tender and meaty chicken breasts bake in a mildly flavored beer sauce and then are topped with crunchy almonds.

This Chicken Beer Bake with Almonds is a recipe I used to make on regular rotation when my husband and I were newly married and I was a novice cook.

Combined, it’s got everything that we both love, chicken, soy sauce, prepared cream of chicken soup, almonds, and BEER! Plus it is super easy to make!!

All those ingredients might sound like an odd combination, but it works, and it works well!

That’s why, after all these years, we still look forward to having it for dinner. The only difference now is that we just don’t have it nearly as often! 🙂
