    4. 4
      Heat pan, add oil; when oil is hot add pieces of chicken. Fry gently until golden brown and cooked through, turning once, drain.
    5. 5
      Repeat with the rest until they are all done.
    6. 6

      Made the recipe as given, & as much as we did like this chicken dish as a once-in-a-while kind of thing & a nice change of pace, most of the time I'd rather have baked chicken! Really, really liked the flavor of this but not so much the way it's prepared!
