- Bring a pot of salted water to boil. Meanwhile, in a separate pot cook the bacon over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add onion and bell pepper and cook for 3 more minutes. In another large bowl, combine the flour, paprika, marjoram and 1 teaspoon salt. Add the chicken and toss to coat.
- Push the vegetables and bacon to one side of the pot and increase the heat from medium to high. Now add the chicken and any remaining flour mixture to the other side and cook, turning, until browned, about 5-6 minutes.
