Using your hands, lightly crush almonds into small pieces; set aside. Place chicken breasts between two sheets of plastic wrap. Pound the chicken lightly with a mallet or meat pounder. Season with salt and pepper. Dredge chicken in flour. Dip chicken in beaten egg. Press each chicken breast in almonds, covering chicken well. Place on buttered baking sheet. Bake at 425°F for 10-15 minutes, until chicken is just firm and almonds are golden. Internal temperature should be at 165. Meanwhile heat butter, lemon juice and basil in a skillet. Drizzle over cooked chicken breasts.
