Curry Chicken

Homemade Jamaican

I just made this [Curry Chicken] and the curry powder too, and it's absolutely the bomb! So flavorful and alongside a bowl of orange lentils I don't think it's beatable. Thank you for sharing this. ~ Kathy



– Wash the chicken with vinegar or citrus. – Cut up the chicken into smaller pieces and add to a large bowl.


– Rub the chicken pieces with Jamaican curry powder, adobo seasoning, allspice, dried thyme, turmeric, and salt and pepper to taste.


– Heat the oil in a large pot or Dutch oven. Add the onion and peppers, and cook them down to soften.


– Add the garlic, ginger, and Jamaican curry powder. Cook in the oil to let the seasoning bloom.


– Add the chicken and cook to brown all sides, flipping half way through.


– Stir in the coconut milk or chicken broth, potatoes, and carrots. Taste and adjust with salt, pepper and hot sauce to your personal tastes. Add a few sprigs of fresh thyme.


– Cover the curry and reduce the heat. Simmer until the vegetables are done and the chicken is tender and cooked through.


– I like to garnish mine with fresh chopped parsley and red pepper flakes. You Curry Chicken is ready to serve!
