Jamaican Style Curry Chicken

Rated as 4.65 out of 5 Stars
3

"This is a recipe that I have put together over some various websites, verbal consultations and just experimenting on my own and with my family. Rich and hearty with a great flavor when you can't get the real thing in the islands. Try a variety of hot peppers to change the flavor - even sweet bell peppers give a different taste. Use fresh thyme to really bring out the fresh taste."

great recipe! very simple I cook jamaican curry chicken about 5 times a year. Not often the breast. So I used this recipe just spooned the outed extra oil and simmered down for a longer time so ...

Loved it! I used coconut milk instead of water. Yum!

I added 2 potatoes, 2 slices of bacon thyme, a bay leaf, and a few baby carrots.The recipe itself is great but I wanted to make it hardier and spicier

Added extra curry, 2 potatoes, 2.5 cups of carrots, and several pinches of light brown sugar, used boneless skinless thighs instead. Yum'

This recipe was delicious ! I may say, I put a little pepper on the chicken for added seasoning. I added like 4 more tablespoons of curry powder. I also added to bay leaves with the water, a lit...

I made it yesterday and ate the whole thing in one sitting, it was so good! Next time however I'm going to add that which it so desperately needed- Pineapple chunks!

just wanted to add that a Jamaican would never make curry using breast meat of the chicken only. The bones give off flavor.

Good as is, but I made some changes the 2nd time around. Added some potatoes, used coconut milk instead of water, and added a big handful of golden raisins. Delicious!

Great my first time making it came out yummy gotta make it for family!
