Chicken Afritada

I always cooked this recipe when I have no prior plan on what to cook for our dinner because all the necessary ingredients are always available at home daily and it is very easy to prepare also. Moreover, there’s no need for me to think what to do with the rice because we like it most when served with plain rice. I like to drizzle the sauce to the rice, I learned that from my hubby and it was really good. Our little Azhfaar likes it also.
When I cooked chicken or any meat, I usually sliced it into small portions, (I think you already noticed that in my previous posts here) because we want the sauce to penetrate deep inside the meat. Sometimes the meat vendors here in Kuwait wondered why I let them sliced it into such a small and they were used of the way Arabs sliced it, very big.

1 medium carrot, cubed
2 medium potatoes, cubed
