About 3 lbs. cut-up chicken or chicken breasts, thighs, legs
1/3 cup flour
2 tsp. salt
About 1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup finely diced onion
1/2 cup finely diced celery
1/2 cup finely diced green pepper
1 cup ketchup
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tbsp. salt
1/2 tsp. hickory smoked salt
1/2 tsp. basil leaves
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. pepper
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).
