  • Heat up oil in a saucepan and sauté onion till fragrant. Scoop in the tomato paste and stir fry for about a minute. 
  • Pour in the chicken stock and coconut milk. Cook till stew thickens to your desired consistency. Remember to stir continuously or at close intervals to prevent burning.
  • Taste and adjust seasoning. 
  • Add your the cooked chicken pieces, allow simmer low heat for another minute to absorb the flavors.
  •  Turn off heat then toss in the chopped bell peppers and spring onions and the sauce is ready. Delicious and pretty to behold.

  • The Use of Tomato paste in this recipe makes for a faster prep. You can use 2- 3 Tbsp of my Stew base.
  • You can use freshly blended red bell peppers in that case you will need two large red bell peppers. You will need to cook it down a bit in the oil to get a thickened consistency before adding the meat stock and coconut milk.
  • You can make this dish vegetarian simply by swapping the chicken stock with vegetable stock. This dish can easily be made with tofu or any other vegetarian meat substitute.
