salt and ground black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion, fresh or frozen
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic, fresh or jarred organic

1/2 cup finely ground almonds or almond meal
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large, nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken on both sides remove to a plate. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon oil to the pan, reduce the heat to low, add the onion, and sauté until tender do not brown.

Add the garlic, jalapeño, almond meal, cinnamon, and oregano and cook until the seasoning is aromatic, about 10 seconds. Add the almond milk and stir to distribute the almond mixture.

Stir in the cilantro pesto, and serve.
