- Chicken Drumsticks or Thighs - Olive Oil - Garlic - Onion

Heat the oil in a deep pan or Dutch oven. Add the chicken pieces and fry until nicely browned on all sides. Transfer the chicken to another plate. Set aside.


To the oil that’s left add the garlic and onions.


Cook for a couple of minutes and then add the tomatoes. Cook for another 4-5 minutes until the tomatoes soften a bit. Stir the veggies to remove the remaining brown bits on the bottom.


Return the chicken to the pan. Add 2 Tablespoon of fish sauce (or salt – not 2 Tablespoons but according to taste) and a little water (about 1/4 -1/3 cup). Add the bay leaves and simmer.
