In a large heavy pot, heat the oil over medium-high heat and sauté the chicken, turning to brown on both sides. Remove the chicken and set aside. Add the onions and bell pepper and sauté for about five minutes, or until they are soft. Reduce the heat to medium. Add the flour and stir constantly for about five minutes.
