Ingredients -
3 big chicken thighs

3. Coat the chicken thighs with the seasoned flour, ensuring all parts are well coated. Do not throw the flour away.
4. In a pot with oil, sear both sides of the chicken thighs until golden brown (chicken thigh does not need to be cooked at this stage). Then remove the thighs from pot. Leaving the fats/oil in the pot.
5. In the same pot, cook the onions follow by the garlic, then add 2 1/2 tbsp seasoned flour in and stir to mix.
