Curried Chicken With Almonds And Dried Fruit

Ingredients

    4 tablespoons sliced almonds
    2 teaspoons olive or vegetable oil
    4 skinless chicken breast halves
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (or sliced and bottled in water)
    2 teaspoons curry powder
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    1 1/2 cups fat-free chicken broth
    1/2 cups dried-fruit bits (such as Sunsweet), or chopped, dried apricots, apples, pears and plums
    2 cups cooked brown or white rice
    1/2 cup chopped green onions

Directions

    Toast almonds by heating in a dry skillet over medium-high heat until golden, about 2-3 minutes, shaking the pan frequently; set aside.

    Heat oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add chicken; sauté 1 minute per side, until golden brown. Remove from pan; set aside.

    To the same pan, add onion, garlic and ginger; sauté 2 minutes. Add curry powder, salt and pepper and stir to coat. Return chicken to pan, meat-side down, and add broth and dried fruit. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10-15 minutes, until chicken is cooked through. Spoon 1/2 cup rice onto four individual plates.

    Arrange chicken alongside rice and spoon sauce over chicken and rice. Top chicken with green onions and toasted almonds.
