Peanut Butter Chicken

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 broiler/fryer chicken (3 pounds), cut up
1/2 cup canola oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 cup water
1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon cider vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons cold water


In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and shake to coat.
In a large skillet, brown chicken in oil on all sides; remove to paper towels. Drain, reserving 2 tablespoons drippings.
In the drippings, saute onion and garlic until tender. Add the tomato sauce, water, peanut butter, sugar, vinegar and chili powder. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Return chicken to the pan; cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken juices run clear.
Remove chicken and keep warm. In a small bowl, combine cornstarch and cold water until smooth; gradually stir into pan juices. Bring to a boil over medium heat; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chicken. Yield: 6-8 servings.
