BRAISED CHICKEN IN ONIONS
(POLLO EN CEBOLLA)
I have no idea where I got this recipe, but I've had it for ages and prepare it occasionally. It's simple, easy, and so flavorful---perfect for a Mexican Fiesta! Don't overcook the onions!
Serves: 4

1 frying chicken -- cut up
Salt, Pepper and Paprika to taste
3 tablespoons canola oil
2 large onion, halved -- thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic -- minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoon dried chopped cilantro
