Yes

In Solana, a transaction is a list of instructions.

allocating data is an instruction, token transfer is an instruction etc...

In this case you need an

  • associated token account instruction
  • transfer token instruction

example with @solana/web3.js

let tx = new Transaction().add(

  // create nonce account
   Token.createAssociatedTokenAccountInstruction(
        mintToken.associatedProgramId,
        mintToken.programId,
        mintPublicKey,
        associatedDestinationTokenAddr,
        destPublicKey,
        wallet.publicKey
      )


  // init nonce account
   Token.createTransferInstruction(
      TOKEN_PROGRAM_ID,
      fromTokenAccount.address,
      associatedDestinationTokenAddr,
      wallet.publicKey,
      [],
      amount
    )
  );

  console.log(
    `txhash: ${await connection.sendTransaction(tx, [feePayer, 
  nonceAccount])}`
);
