  1. Wash Chicken and cut into desired size. Set aside.

  3. Open a small can of tomato sauce and chicken stock.
  4. Heat a skillet on Medium – Medium High heat. Add some cooking oil. Once the oil has heated through, add the onions and garlic. Sautee for 3 minutes. Add the chicken and salt to taste. Let the chicken sit for 45 seconds or until it starts to get gold/brown color on one side, then flip and let other side get some color.
  5. Add the drained potatoes to the skillet and let them sautee until most liquid is absorbed from the skillet. Add all the vegetables, let it sautee for 4 mins.
  6. Slowly add tomato sauce and chicken stock until desired thickness. Add a little bit of water as the liquid evaporates from the skillet.
  7. Drop 2 bay leaves in the skillet, sprinkle some sugar to cut out the bitterness of the tomato sauce, and put a lid on. Lower heat to LOW-Medium Low and let it simmer for 30 minutes.
