Preheat oven to 375°F. For stuffing, melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook almonds, celery, and onion until vegetables are tender. Stir in 2 tablespoons water, bouillon granules, parsley

flakes, and almond flavor. Add bread cubes; toss to moisten. Cut opening in each chop from the outer side, widen opening into pocket, being careful not to cut through the other side of the chop. Fill pockets in chops with equal amounts of stuffing. Secure with toothpicks. Place stuffed chops on roasting rack in shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, until internal temperature is 145°F, 35-45 minutes. Remove toothpicks from chops. Let rest 3 minutes and serve.
