Ground Chicken Stew with Chayote Squash

A one-pot meal/stew of

This one-pot meal is quite typical of the way the Burmese people make stew. All the ingredients are dumped into a skillet and simmered until the oil resurfaces and chicken & vegetables are cooked.

4 chayote squash, peeled & diced
2 large onions, diced
8 cloves garlic, diced

2 tsp. Kashmiri mirch or chili powder to taste
2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 tsp. shrimp sauce in oil
4 Tbsp. vegetable oil
3-4 green chilies, slit
salt to taste

1. Boil ground chicken in chicken broth for 20 minutes.
2. Remove chicken from broth, allow to cool and break into pieces.
3. Pulse chicken in food processor until crumbled.
4. Place chicken & all other ingredients into the same skillet & bring to a boil.
5. Adjust salt to taste, stir, cover and simmer over medium heat.
6. When oil resurfaces & chayote squash are cooked, transfer to a serving dish.

Serve with hot, steamed Basmati or Jasmine rice.
