- Caution: this mixture will brown very quickly, so watch it carefully, but make sure to brown it well.
- Add onions to pot and scrape bottom to loosen browned bits.
- Cook, stirring and scraping frequently, until onions are brown, about 4 minutes.
- Add ginger, seasoned flour, and 1/2 cup of stock and stir until flour is completely incorporated.
- Continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until flour begins to stick, about 2-3 minutes.
- Stir in remaining stock and seasoning mix and scrape pot well.
- Return chicken and juices to pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer until chicken is tender and sauce has reduced to 4 cups, about 30 minutes.
