½ tsp crushed garlic
3 cups coconut milk
¼ cup cooking oil

Rub the garlic into the chicken. In a bowl place the chicken, onion, tomato, salt, pepper and turmeric. Mix curry and cinnamon leaves.
Heat oil in pot, add curry powder and cook stirring for one minute (making sure curry powder doesn't burn).
Add chicken etc. and mix well in pot. Place lid on pot on slow fire, and when chicken is half-cooked, add coconut milk and breadfruit and simmer until well-cooked.
