  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tomato, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion, tomato, garlic, curry powder, habanero pepper, and thyme until onion is golden, about 7 minutes. Stir in chicken and cook until chicken is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
