To toast the almonds, add them to a small pan over medium heat. Once the pan gets hot, they can burn quick, so watch them close and remove them from the pan as soon as they look lightly toasted (or you start to smell them).
This also makes delicious sandwiches or wraps!
To cook your chicken, you can add it to a small pot, cover with water and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove from the water and let it cool before dicing. When chicken breast goes on sale, I cook a whole package at once and divide it into freezer bags for quick meals.
