Step 1 : 

Combine lemon juice, Dijon mustard, garlic, and white pepper in a bowl.

Step 2 : 

Beat in 4.33 tablespoons of olive oil.

Step 3 : 

Add chicken to the marinade and let it marinate for 1 hour at room temperature.

Step 4 : 

In a large skillet, sauté sliced almonds in 0.5 tablespoon of olive oil until golden. Remove and set aside.

Step 5 : 

Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade. Cook the chicken over medium-high heat in the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil until brown on each side, about 6 to 10 minutes total or until just tender. Remove and set aside.

Step 6 : 

Strain the marinade into the skillet. Add chicken broth and the corn starch mixture.

Step 7 : 

Cook over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce reduces by slightly more than one half, about 5 minutes.

Step 8 : 

Add orange marmalade (or lemon marmalade) and stir over medium heat until melted.

Step 9 : 

Over high heat, stir in butter, chopped fresh parsley, and red pepper flakes.

Step 10 : 

Return the chicken to the skillet and heat through.

Step 11 : 

Add the sautéed almonds. Garnish with lemon slices, if desired. Serve with rice.
