Step 1In a large skillet heat 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil and heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken and brown for 3 minutes on each side. Set aside on separate plate.
Step 2Reduce heat to medium and add remaining 1/2 tbsp (7 mL) canola oil, onions and garlic and cook for 3 minutes or until onions are translucent, stirring frequently. Set aside with chicken.
Step 3Stir flour into pan residue in skillet and cook 2 minutes over medium heat or until beginning to lightly brown, stirring constantly. Stir in broth, thyme and pepper. Add chicken, onions and any accumulated juices. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or until chicken is almost tender.
Step 4Place chicken to one side of skillet, add and mash garlic cloves with back of a spoon. Combine chicken and garlic and turn chicken pieces over several times or until well coated. Cover and cook 5-7 minutes or until chicken is tender.
