1 TBSP peanut oil
1 TBSP unsalted butter
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into bite size pieces
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 TBSP fresh lime juice
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 pound fresh tomatoes, chopped

1. Heat the oil and butter in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot add the chicken and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.

2. Stir in the water, soy sauce, lime juice, onion, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, bay leaves, and 1/2 tsp pepper and bring to a boil.
