  1. Rinse chicken pieces; pat dry. Coat chicken with the flour and the 2 tsp. salt. Brown pieces on all sides in the hot oil, then place pieces in a 3-qt. casserole. (Discard drippings.) Combine remaining ingredients, mixing well. Spoon sauce over chicken, covering all pieces. Cover casserole, bake in moderate oven, 350°F, about 1 1/4 hours, or until chicken is fork-tender. If desired, serve chicken with sauces on hot cooked rice. Makes 4 to 6 servings (about 3 cups sauce).

To reduce foam for accurate measurement, use Coca-Cola at room temperature and stir rapidly.
