  • Heat up ordinary olive oil in pan, enough for browning the chicken pieces.
  • Season the chicken with salt and pepper, dredge with flour and brown all sides in hot oil. Set aside. Pour off excess oil leaving about a tablespoon in the pan.
  • Saute garlic and onions in the same pan until tender.
  • Replace browned chicken pieces with all the nice juices that leaked out of the meat. Add potatoes, peas, water, bouillon cube, and the dried herbs.
  • Simmer until the chicken and potatoes are done. Check seasoning and serve.
  • If you're in for a good movie, get the bones off and flake the chicken in chunks however way you like it. I like mine in large chunks.
  • And then sit back with your bowl of nice soup and enjoy.
