Use 1 - 2 tbsp of the chicken frying oil and stir fry onion, garlic and chorizo till onion is softened.
Then add chicken, bay leaves and potatoes.
Then stir in milk, coconut milk, chilli powder and enough salt to taste.
Stir and cook for a minute or two till the sauce is hot and thickened, if sauce looks too thick add some water or more milk. Then stir in tomotoes and olive.
