Healthy, because

The cream and clarified butter makes this recipe relatively high in fat. However the lean protein from chicken, heart-healthy fats from almonds and minerals from turmeric add valuable nutrients.

Remember to lightly toast the almonds before adding to this dish, which will greatly amplify the flavor and make them meld better in the recipe.
