  1. Spray a large saucepan with oil and put over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and pepper. Then cook them for 5 minutes or until soft, and remove it from the heat.
  2. Put a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Then, spray the chicken with oil and brown it in batches. Transfer the meat to the saucepan.
  3. Add the curry paste to the frying pan and heat for 1 minute. Also add the tomatoes and sugar. Then stir it until boiling, and tip the mixture into the saucepan.
  4. Return the saucepan to the heat, and add the sweet potato with 100ml of hot water. Bring to the boil. Then reduce the heat to low, and with the pan loosely covered, simmer for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and the potato is tender.
