Jamaican Style Curry Chicken

Recipe by  

"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 the gravy could thicken. also u could add small pieces of potato to the simmering process. it will help thicken gravy and make it more hearty!

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

I cut the oil down to one tablespoon and used a little water to help sauté the veggies and spices. Yummy!
