1. On a sheet of waxed papper combine the flour and 1/4 tsp of the salt. dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess.

3 Reduce the heat to low. add the onions to the skillet and sprinkle with the sugar. Cook, stiring frequently, until the onions are softened and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, broth, bay leaf, thyme, oregano, cayenne, and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Bring to a boil, return the chicken to the pan and reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked thourh, about 15 min. Discard the bay leaf.

Split into 4 servings and spoon over rice... sprinkle with fresh parsley.

Helpful hints: Well drained canned whole tomatoes would work equally well in this dish. You can make the chicken up to 8 hours in advance. Gently reheat it, covered over low heat before serving with warm rice.
