Another favourite of our household, try the succulent Jamaican brown stew chicken!
By no means am I a great cook -not even an average one, but I must
say that this is one of the easiest dishes to prepare, and it is still
darn tasty - excuse my language.
It is certainly in my top five favourite dishes. Of course curried chicken and the sumptuous chicken foot soup are my top two!
It is also a very popular and regular dish here. And by regular I
mean it is habitually prepared, most traditional families prepares it
at least once per week.
If you eat out, you will also find it in all our local
restaurants here. And just as the other popular Jamaican dishes, you
should also get this dish in most Jamaican restaurants overseas,
particularly the US,CA and UK.
Here is a simple recipe, give it a shot.
And if you don't mind, let me know how it went. It's very simple so please don't disappoint me now, OK?
3 lb. Chicken
1 stalk escallion
2 cloves garlic (chopped)
2 cups water
1 tsp. Salt
3 regular sized carrots
1 oz. soy sauce
1 sprig. thyme (chopped)
1.5 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion (Chopped)
2 Tomatoes (diced)
½ oz lime juice
4 tablespoon ketchup
Wash the chicken in water with the lime juice.
Clean & cut chicken into small pieces.
With the exception of the oil and ketchup, combine the chicken and all the other seasonings-including soy sauce.
Rub all the ingredients into the chicken and allow to marinate for a few hours (even overnight, if possible).
Remove the tomatoes,scallion and other easily removed seasonings from the chicken and place in a bowl.
Heat the vegetable oil- well hot, and fry all the chicken pieces until brown.
Add all the seasonings in the same saucepan along with the tomato ketchup and carrot.
