Add the chicken pieces and shake to coat. Warm a heavy based saucepan, add the oil and brown the chicken pieces lightly. Keep on one side.
In the same pan, sauté the onions together with the Green Onion Seasoning. When the onions are soft and beginning to brown, add the sliced garlic. Cook for 2 minutes.
