combine the flour, salt, pepper and oregano in a large plastic food bag. 
coat a few chicken pieces at a time, shaking off the excess. heat 1 
1/2 tablespoons of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high 
heat. when the oil is hot, brown the chicken on all sides in 2 batches

add the reserved 1/2 tablespoon of oil to the same skillet over 
medium-high heat. when hot, add the onions, garlic, celery and carrots.

well distributed. 
bake, covered (with foil or casserole cover), 1 hour. use tongs to move 
chicken from bottom to top. bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes more. 
there should be lots of sauce (for spooning over the macaroni side 
dish). cool, then refrigerate up to 3 days, covered airtight. 
to serve, skim any congealed fat off the surface. reheat, covered, at 
350 degrees until bubbling, about 45 minutes. taste; adjust seasoning.

parsley mixture and feta cheese. serve hot.

comments: i've tried this recipe using chicken without the skin but it 
wasn't as flavorful as this version. make it a day or two ahead so the 
flavors can develop. be sure to use dried oregano flakes with an 
intense fragrance.
