There's a lot of ways to say "filling": hearty, satisfying, substantial, and more. But another way to say it might just be "Amandine". Chicken Amandine, so named for the crunchy almond topping, is a deliciously tender dish stuffed with savory flavors. Salty, meaty, and with a touch of heat, Chicken Amandine covers all the flavor bases. Filled with rice and green beans, it's basically a full meal in one dish—perfect for quiet nights in!


1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup onion, chopped
1 (6-ounce) package long grain and wild rice
2 1/4 cups chicken broth
3 cups chicken, cooked and cubed
2 cups frozen french-style green beans, thawed
1 (10.75-ounce) can condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
3/4 cup almonds, sliced and divided into 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup
