  • 3.5 cups yellow potatoes peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup carrot peeled and chopped, add more if desired
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 3 cups water

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil



  • In a small bowl mix sauce ingredients. Set aside.
  • In a pot over medium high heat, add cooking oil followed by onions. Fry until translucent.
  • Next add chicken drumsticks and allow them to brown a bit on each side.
  • Throw in peeled chopped potatoes and carrots, let them fry for a couple of minutes.
  • Add sauce, followed by water. Mix everything together. Bring to a boil and then reduce to medium heat. Simmer for 20 - 25 minutes covered, or until potatoes are fork tender. Stirring occasionally.
