  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch chunks

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 ½ tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 2 tablespoons curry powder

  • ½ onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed

  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed, diced tomatoes

  • 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
