  1. Add the tomatoes, red bell pepper, quartered onion, and pepper to a blender and blend until smooth.
  2. In a pot over medium heat, add 2 tablespoons oil, diced red onion, chicken, and curry powder. Cook until onions are soft and chicken has browned, about 8-10 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and set aside.
  3. Raise heat to medium-high, and using the same pot, add pureed tomato mixture, cooking until reduced by half.
  4. Add in remaining oil, and fry sauce for 8-10 minutes.
  5. Stir in chicken, along with rice, stock and thyme leaves.
  6. Cover pot tightly with foil. Cover with lid and reduce heat to low, cooking for 30 minutes.
  7. Once rice is cooked, fluff up before serving.
  8. Enjoy!
