"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."

  1. Heat vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat; cook and stir onion, tomato, garlic, curry powder, habanero pepper, and thyme until onion is golden, about 7 minutes. Stir in chicken and cook until chicken is lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  2. Pour water into the skillet, reduce heat to low; cover and simmer until chicken is no longer pink at the center, about 30 minutes. Season with salt.



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 ...

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

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

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

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!

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

Yum yum yum, this recipe is awesome, very easy to make and full of flavor. Anne.

I made this and it was very good. I add potatoes, carrots and green pepper.

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