Jamaican Curry Chicken

Recipe by  

"I couldn't find a recipe I liked, so here is my family's version of 'curried' chicken. It brings back memories of a childhood spent enjoying food there, where there were very few dishes I wouldn't eat, vegetables or not. This dish is traditionally served on white rice or in a roti, but feel free to get creative!"

Directions

  1. Whisk 2 tablespoons curry powder, garlic powder, seasoned salt, onion powder, salt, thyme leaves, allspice, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Add chicken and coat with curry mixture until curry mixture is wet and sticks to chicken.
  2. Heat oil and 2 tablespoons curry powder in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat until oil is hot and curry powder changes color, 2 to 3 minutes. Add chicken to the hot oil mixture and reduce heat to medium. Add potato, carrots, scallions, ginger, and chile pepper to skillet.
  3. Cover skillet and simmer until chicken is no longer pink in the center and gravy is thickened, allowing chicken to cook undisturbed for last 15 minutes of cooking, 30 to 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the thigh, near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove chicken from skillet and continue simmering gravy if needed to thicken.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • The key to curried chicken is allowing the curry to cook properly. Make sure your curry has had enough time to cook!
  • Also try a meatless version with veggies in the place of chicken!
  • I usually use just over half of the scotch bonnet pepper, but some peppers are hotter than others.

Made it for the first and my family and friends loved it .

This tastes just like the curry chicken my mom's friend from St. Kitts used to make when I was young. As this is the exact taste I was going for, and I've never made curried chicken before, I'm giving the recipe 5 stars. The only problem I ran into is that the recipe doesn't mention when to add the water. I did so about half way through step 2 when I realized the error.
