Directions:
1. Combine flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder on piece of wax paper. Coat chicken breasts on all sides in the flour mixture.

2. Heat a few tablespoons of vegetable oil over medium-high in 12" skillet or frypan with straight sides. Ovensafe pan will save you from using two pans. SautÚ chicken breasts until browned on both sides about 5 minutes per side. Remove from skillet and set aside.

3. Add more oil if necessary to frypan. SautÚ onion, green pepper and mushrooms until softened. When mushrooms start to release their liquid, add 2 tbsp of flour to thicken the sauce.

4. Dilute mushroom soup with 1/2 can of water. Pour over vegetables in skillet. Add 1/2 cup wine, oregano, raisins and almonds and stir mixture well. Nestle chicken back into frypan and place in preheated 325║F oven. Bake covered for 30 minutes.

This recipe has a special story attached to it. This is the first meal that Wendy cooked for us when we became friends after we met in birthing class in Ottawa. DJ was probably no more than a month old and Wendy and Earle had us over for dinner. We shared a great meal and the start of a wonderful friendship, still going strong after 35 years! Serves 4.
