I would actually rate this 2 1/2 if I could. Made as written with the exception that I had crushed pinnepple instead of pineapple chunks. I don't know if it would make a differnce but I think I would prefer the chunks. I served it over rice. The thin soup base it makes is delicious over rice. I really enjoyed it but husband did not care for it. He said it reminds him of pot roast which I love and he does not care for. That is the type of dish it is. I was expecting it to have a little more "spice" flavor to it but I do like really strong flavors. After tasting it I did add salt to my plate which helped improve the flavor a lot. I love the easiness of the this recipe-I actually used frozen chicken tenders. And it is healthy too. Read More

Made as written - and it was extremely fragrant (which I don't prefer my meat dishes to be) and the types and amounts of spices seemed way out of proportion. I would definitely halve or omit the thyme and ginger and consider adding something to give it some heat. The sauce is very liquid-y and could use some thickening as well. I don't think i'd make it again! Read More

This was so easy and very tasty. I didn't have a lime but I did have a lemon so I used the zest from that. Other than that I made it as written. The raisins were a nice addition. I also added some sliced scallions on the top for added color. I will definitely make this again. Read More

There are lots of good ingredients in this meal and the flavors come through but for my family they just didn't play well together. Another problem for me is that this was done in just 4 hours on low heat. I turned it down to Warm but the potatoes were mush by the time we ate 2 hours later. We all tasted it but no one ate it; none of us could figure out how to make it work for us and we really like like Jamaican food. Thanks for the recipe but we won't be making it again. Read More

Awesome recipe even though I misread "slow cooker" for "Pressure cooker" Duh. Anyway cooked it in the Pressure cooker for 3 and a half hours - came out great!! I also modified it slightly because my family likes more spicy recipies. I added 2 heaping tbsps of hot paprika fresh ginger (1 tbsp) half a cup of coconut flakes and the juice of the lime (and a handful of hot peppers). I also used 1 tbsp of roasted cumin instead of the tsp of regular. The recipe is the bomb! If you like spicier food - this oughtta do it for you! Read More
