1Mix enough flour, salt, and pepper to coat chicken pieces. Slightly dampen chicken pieces with water, then coat well with seasoned flour.
2Heat just enough oil to brown chicken. Brown chicken pieces until golden brown - add garlic and onion towards end of browning; saute until garlic and onion are tender, - a couple of minutes.
3Do not pour oil out of pan! Add rest of ingredients; mix well. Cover pan, heat to boiling, then turn down to a slow simmer.
4Simmer for one hour, or until chicken is tender. Serve with plain spaghetti and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
