Slow cooked chicken stew

3 tbs olive oil
2 small onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
4-5 small/medium tomatoes, chopped (dont let all the juice get away while you're chopping, you want it in the dish! a good way to do this is to chop one tomato at a time, dumping it into the pot as you go)
4 sugar cubes (or spoonfuls, i guess?)
salt & pepper
dried mint
2 long eggplants cut lengthwise into quarters, and then cut into inch long pieces
1 1/2 chicken breasts, cut into small cubes

In the order listed above, cook in a small crockpot type dish (dark coating, high sides, a good metal that will maintain the heat) over medium high. Don't let the heat get past a gentle simmer. Stir occasionally and cook until it looks well melded to you, making sure the chicken is done.
