  2. Add green bell pepper, onion, carrots, and saute. Then add in the apple cider vinegar and stir to combine.
  3. Add the garlic to the pan and keep on medium-low heat while adding the remaining ingredients.
  4. Once the vegetables have cooked down a bit add in the tomato sauce, the white wine, the red wine, and the chicken stock. Then add in oregano, cumin, and bay leaves.
  5. Add the chicken pieces back into the pan along with the potatoes followed by the olives and raisins and stir everything to combine.
