  1. Start by combining all the spices with the olive oil.  Mix well.  Add the chicken and rub well.  Let marinate for an hour an up to overnight.

    In a grill pan, grill the chicken on high heat for 2 minutes per side to get some grill marks.

    Now take all the vegetables and saute in the canola oil for 4 - 5 minutes.  Add in the chicken and the stock and set for 35 - 40 minutes.

    That's it.  Serve over a red pepper sauce, top with pickled red onions and an avocado creama.  Enjoy!
