½ cup Dierbergs flour
1 tablespoon Italian herb seasoning
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 to 2½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs
4 tablespoons Dierbergs olive oil (divided)
2 tablespoons Dierbergs butter
3 cups thinly sliced onion
1 tablespoon Dierbergs brown sugar
1 carton (10 ounces) baby bella mushrooms, quartered

½ of 3-ounce package julienne cut sun-dried tomatoes
2 tablespoons rinsed and drained capers

On sheet of waxed paper, combine flour and seasonings. Reserve 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture for gravy. Dredge chicken in remaining flour mixture, shaking off excess. Discard remaining seasoned flour.

In Dutch oven, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in batches, adding additional olive oil as needed, until lightly browned, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to plate; set aside.

In same pan, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion, brown sugar, and season with salt and pepper; cook stirring frequently until onion is browned, about 15 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms, sweet peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, capers, and balsamic glaze.

Return chicken along with any accumulated juices to pot; pour stock over top. Cover and bake in 325°F. oven until chicken is tender, about 1½ hours.

Transfer chicken to plate; bring mushroom mixture to a boil.

Whisk the reserved 3 tablespoons flour mixture into ⅓ cup water until smooth. Slowly whisk into mushroom mixture until thickened.

Return chicken to pan to coat with sauce. Serve over hot cooked noodles.
