The original recipe for this dish called for a small amount of raisins, but I think its great as is. Be sure to flatten the chicken well; otherwise, the outer coating will burn while you are trying to get the thick piece of chicken to cook through. The day we made this, I served it with parsleyed and buttered potatoes and peas.

2 large bell peppers - red
2 large bell pepper - green
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
salt and pepper
1/4 cup almond slivers - toasted
6 chicken breast halves
3 tablespoons dry bread crumbs
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese - grated
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 egg whites
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons water

Cut bell peppers into wide strips. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium high heat. Add peppers and saute until slightly tender (10 minutes). Add 1/4 cup vinegar, sugar, salt, and pepper. Cook one minute longer. Remove from heat and stir in almonds. Set aside and keep warm.

Flatten chicken breast halves to a 1/4 inch thickness. In a shallow dish, combine cheese and bread crumb. In another shallow dish place flour. Dredge chicken in flour, then dip in egg whites, and then in bread crumb mixture.

In a large nonstick skillet, heat remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil over medium high heat. Cook chick until well done (3 minutes per side). Set aside and keep warm.

Add 2 tablespoons vinegar and water to skillet; stir with a wooden spoon to loosen brown bits.

On a serving platter place chicken and bell pepper mixture. Spoon water-vinegar mixture over chicken and bell peppers.
