Stew chicken recipe
2 lbs chicken breast (sliced in strips) 
1.5 tbsp Adobo seasoning            (favorite mixed seasoning)
1 tsp curry powder 
1 sprig fresh thyme
1 tsp crushed garlic 
1/2 red bell pepper (think my sliced)
1/2 green bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1/2 yellow bell pepper (thinly sliced)
1 medium onion (sliced)
1 cup water
1 tbsp ketchup 
1 tbsp. cornflour/corn starch (optional for a thicker sauce)  
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 tbsp of brown sugar
Wash chicken with some water and lemon/ vinegar  
Place chicken in a mixing  bowl, add adobo seasoning, curry, thyme, garlic, onions, bell peppers.  Mix well and marinate in the fridge for at least 2 hrs or overnight.
In a heavy, high-sided pan, heat vegetable oil (2 tablespoon) over medium-high heat. Add Brown Sugar (1 tablespoon) and move it around until it starts to liquify. You’re looking for small bubbles, which will then become a bit frothy, then from light to golden/dark brown.
As soon as the sugar is a golden, dark brown, start adding the seasoned chicken a few pieces at a time. Remember to stir constantly to ensure all the pieces are coated evenly.
After you’ve added all the seasoned meat to the pot, turn down the heat to medium/low, cover and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes. Meanwhile, add Water (1 cup) to the bowl you had the chicken marinating in and set aside.
After about 5 minutes, remove the lid and add the ketchup and the water mixture from the bowl. Stir well.
Cook over medium heat for another 10- 15 minutes, depending on how thick your pieces of chicken are. Make sure all pieces are cooked thoroughly.
