Almond-Orange Chicken!

I think that many have done a take on this, but some may not make their chicken gluten and dairy free. This chicken, however, is completely gluten and dairy free!
I served this with corn on the cob and cucumbers and it was just the perfect size.
Tom and I have been portioning as we have both been losing weight, but we've both kind of reached a stand-still. So, I just made one 8 oz. chicken breast and we split it.
Tweak the recipe if you need to make for more chicken.

Dip chicken breast in oil and extract mixture, and then coat generously with orange and almond mixture.
