Smothered Chicken tutorial

My girl gloom asked me to do this for her so I obliged. I don't really measure but I did some just for her in order to make sure it is accurate.

8-10 pieces of chicken pieces about 3-3 1/2 pounds
1/2 tsp crushed garlic (I used crushed garlic in a jar)
About 1 cup flour
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 chopped onion
1 chopped bell pepper (I sometimes use mushrooms and celery as well)
About 3 cups of chicken broth

Season chicken and cover in flour. Remove excess flour. Reserve about 2-3 T of the flour. Pour oil in pan and heat on medium. Add chicken to brown.

Cook chicken on each side for about 5 minutes until lightly browned.

Transfer the chicken to a plate and leave about 3 T of the oil in the pan. Add veggies and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until soft.

Add reserved flour and stir well.

Gradually stir in chicken broth. Season broth with salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and then reduce to low.

Add chicken to pot and cook for about 30-40 minutes or until chicken doesn't run pink, stirring often.

Here is a plate I made for one of the Supremes. Enjoy!!! Q

I tried this, but I din't have the chicken broth, maybe it would had more flavor to it. I totally screwed this up. Oh well, better luck next time. Yours looks soooo tasty though.
