Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain pastry flour
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 bell peppers, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) organic diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup dry red wine or chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
  • 3 tablespoons dried currants

Steps

  • 1
    In small nonstick skillet, toast almonds over medium heat, stirring often, 3 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted. Tip onto a plate; let cool.
  • 2
    Cut chicken breasts crosswise in half. Season with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Lightly coat with flour, patting off excess. In a 5-quart saucpean or Dutch oven, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned but not cooked through. Remove chicken to a plate.
  • 3
    Add onion and bell peppers to the saucepan. Cook and stir 5 minutes or until vegetables are softened. Stir in garlic, curry powder, thyme and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add tomatoes (with juice) and wine; heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer 5 minutes. Stir in currants.
  • 4
    Return chicken to saucepan, pushing it down into the sauce. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat and partially cover saucepan. Cook 10 to 15 minutes or until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of chicken reads 160°F and juices run clear. Sprinkle with almonds.
