Simmered & Seared Curry Chicken


Season your chicken with salt and pepper and set aside. In a deep pot heat some olive oil over medium high heat and add some sliced onions, minced garlic, ginger, bay leaves, and jalapenos. Cook for about 3 minutes while stirring then add some chicken stock and your chicken. Bring your stock to a boil then turn your heat down low and simmer occasionally stirring for about 5-7 minutes.
