Instructions Checklist
  • Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, turmeric, and cinnamon. Cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Add the tomatoes and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up the tomatoes with a spoon, until thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the chicken, sweet potato, golden raisins, 4 cups water, 1¼ teaspoons salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through and the sweet potato is tender, 25 to 35 minutes; coarsely shred the chicken. Stir in the lemon juice.
