- Heat vegetable oil in a large Dutch oven (I use my large electric frypan for this).

- Add in sliced onions (leave the chicken pieces in the Dutch oven do not remove to a plate) stirring constantly until wilted and browned.

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!!!
