In large Dutch oven, heat oil and saute onion and garlic. Once onion begins to soften, add chopped tomato and chicken pieces. Slightly brown the chicken pieces, salt and pepper and add the ground cumin.
Once chicken has lightly browned, add the water, bullion cubes and wine. Cover and allow chicken to simmer at medium-low heat for at least 30 minutes.
Add the carrots, potatoes, and peas. Taste broth, as more cumin or salt and pepper may be needed. Add just enough water to simmer vegetables if needed. Once vegetables are done, remove from heat and allow to sit uncovered for 5 minutes before serving with white, steamed rice.
