Sandy Altorfer


3 1/2 - 4 lb. chicken breasts
salt and pepper
2 onions, finely chopped
2 green peppers, chopped
1 small garlic bud, minced
1 1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp white pepper
3 tsp curry powder
2 1/2 (no. 303) cans tomatoes
1 tsp chopped parsley
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 lb. toasted almonds
3 heaping Tbsp currants
2 c. cooked rice

Remove skin from chicken; roll in a mixture of flour, salt and pepper. Brown in melted shortening. Remove from pan, but keep warm (secret of this dish's success). Brown onions, pepper and garlic slowly in remaining shortening, stirring constantly. Season with curry (to taste), then salt and pepper to taste. Add tomatoes, parsley and thyme. Put chicken in roaster and pour mixture over it. If it does not cover the chicken, rinse out the skillet with water and add it to the chicken. Bake at 375F for 45 minutes or until chicken is very tender. Place chicken in middle of platter; pile hot rice around it, cooked very dry and every grain separate. Drop currants in the sauce mixture; stir. Pour over the rice. Scatter almonds on top.
