1Cook garlic and onion in olive oil in a pan at medium heat, and stirring for approximately 5 minutes until the onion is translucent. Add sweet potatoes, tomatoes, bell pepper, chicken and 50 cl of water. Add salt, cumin, oregano, cocoa powder, chili powder and cinnamon. Bring to boil by getting heat on medium-high. Whisk flour into 2 tablespoons of water and stir in the stew and cover.

2Lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10-20 minutes until the potatoes are a bit soft but do not squashy. Stir occasionally to prevent the vegetables from sticking.
