  • Mix together flour, salt, pepper and paprika. Heat oil in a heavy skillet or Dutch oven (medium heat). Roll each piece of chicken in seasoned flour and brown in hot oil. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.
  • Add onions, mushrooms and lime slices to pan and cook, stirring, for 2 or 3 minutes. Add wine and 1/2 cup water and cook until liquid is almost gone.Add chicken and 1/2 cup water and simmer, partly covered, until the liquid is almost gone. Add another 1/2 cup water, cover, and simmer until chicken is tender. Check occasionally and add more water if needed. The liquid should end up cooked down to a thick sauce, but the pan should never be allowed to get dry. Total cooking time should be 30 - 45 minutes, depending on the size of the chicken
  • Squeeze the remaining 1/2 lime over contents of the pan, turning chicken pieces to coat with sauce. Spoon sauce, including lime slices, over chicken and serve hot.
