This dish was cooked by Jade sometime ago. She got the recipe from a cookbook that she gave me for my birthday last year, One Pot - simple & delicious easy to make recipes. She knows I just love one-pot meals that are also quick and easy. This dish, she cooked for us one day. It was so nice to come home and do nothing but eat dinner. Thanks, Jade :-D

2 TBSP vegetable oil
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1 potato, diced
1 sweet potato, diced
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 or 2 green chiles, seeded and chopped
7 oz (1 can) canned chopped tomatoes
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 TBSP chopped fresh cilantro
2 cups chicken stock

Heat oil in a skillet and lightly brown the chicken. Add the onion, bell pepper, potato and sweet potato. Saute' for a minute or two until the vegetables begin to soften. Add the garlic and chilies and stir for a minute until fragrant. Add the tomatoes, oregano, salt & pepper, and half the cilantro. Stir. Pour in the stock and let it simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.

Sprinkle with the remaining cilantro just before serving.
