Tasty, Lip Smacking
Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken
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?
