    2. 2
      Toss/coat the chicken pieces well on all sides with flour mixture.

    4. 4
      Add in the coated chicken pieces and brown on both sides (about 6-8 minutes per side).

      Another Kitten exclusive. Tagged for Newest Zaar tag 8a 2/08. Oh yea this is so good my DH was drooling waiting for the meal to be put on the table. I could have skipped all the sides and just served this and DH woud have still been in heaven. He loves onions! I am not a fryer (dietary preference)but I did follow directions except reduced cayenne by 1/2),it did not taste fried or greasy. We very much liked ths and plan to have again very soon. I love how everything cooks together and takes on the sweet taste of the onions and chicken. Excellent!!!
