      In a large baking dish, combine the onion, garlic, chile, salt, ginger, and black pepper. Stir in the lemon juice, 1 c water, and 1 tbsp oil. Coat the chicken pieces in marinade and refrigerate at least 4 hours. Turn pieces every half hour or so.

      Remove chicken from marinade, and reserve the marinade. Pat the pieces dry. In a skillet, heat the remaining 4 tbsp oil over medium-high heat. Brown the chicken, a few pieces a t a time, turning frequently to brown evenly. Pour off all but 2 tbsp oil from the skillet and remove it from heat.
