Preheat Cuisinart™ Electric Skillet to 400°F. Combine flour with salt, pepper and cayenne in a flat bowl; lightly coat chicken breasts, shaking off excess. Pour olive oil into Skillet and swirl to coat bottom. Brown chicken breasts, about 4 minutes per side or until golden. Remove and keep warm. Reduce heat to 200°F; add the butter. Cook the garlic, onions and peppers for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened. Add curry powder, thyme, and bay leaf; stir. Add tomatoes and chicken stock; bring to a boil. Add chicken breasts, loosely cover Skillet, and simmer for 12 to15 minutes. Remove cover; add raisins and green onions. Simmer for 5 minutes or until chicken is completely cooked. Remove and discard bay leaf. Garnish with chopped parsley and toasted almonds. Serve with rice.
