Jamaican Stew Chicken Recipe (Yum)

Jamaican Stew Chicken Recipe Ingredients:

You will need to visit a west Indian food / Caribbean food store to get most of these ingredients. Be sure to bring your list with you and ask the sales person about ingredients you are unfamiliar with. This is my favorite Jamaican food recipe!

  1. 1 whole chicken medium-sized
    4 cups of lime juice
  2. 1 teaspoon of salt
    1 scotch bonnet pepper
    1 sweet pepper
  3. 3 garlic cloves
  4. half piece of ginger…about half inch
  5. 3 tomatoes
    some cooking oil
  6. 1 tea spoon of pepper
  7. 1 whole onion
    3 scallion onions
  8. 1 tablespoon of butter
    1 tablespoon of “browning”
    soya sauce about (2 table spoons)
  9. 3 tablespoons of flour, stirred in to 1/4 cup of flour
    3 mini bunches of thyme, if this makes no sense, it will when you see it I promise.

Cooking your Jamaican stew Chicken

  • Wash your chicken with some lime juice, just rub the lime juice all over the chicken. Be sure to get into the crevices too.
  • Chop the chicken into small pieces
  • Chop the onion, scallion, hot scotch bonnet pepper, sweet pepper, garlic and tomatoes in to small pieces. Grate the ginger, then mix the flour in your 1/4 cup of water.
  • Prepare a pepper, thyme, onion, and scallion, hot pepper and sweet pepper, garlic, ginger and tomato mixture……then rub your chicken in it….best done in a big plastic bowl
  • let the chicken sit in the mixture for 1 hour….
  • Scrape the seasoning off the chicken and fry in the oil until the chicken is sealed (about 5 minutes).
  • Remove the chicken and drain off the oil.
  • Melt the butter in the saucepan and fry the onion, scallion, hot pepper, sweet pepper, garlic, tomatoes mixture for about 3-4 minutes
  • Add the water, soy sauce and browning and let simmer for five minutes.
  • Stir the flour/water mixture in to the stew mixture, then add the chicken.
  • Let simmer for 5 minutes and stir occasionally, until ready.
  • you’ll know when its ready when the chicken feels cooked and you can see that the mixture comes to an even consistency.
  • This dish goes best with some rice and peas, and some fresh salad.

…this was My favorite Jamaican Chicken Recipe

I have cooked Jamaican stewed chicken about 4 times, and every time I make it, i am surprised how easy it was to make. Making Jamaican chicken can be hard your first time, but keep doing it and you will get the hang of it just like I did. This is a form of Jamaican fried chicken, so if you don’t like greasy foods, don’t make this recipe. I absolutely love the gravy, (this was befofre my faith) I think that’s the whole reason I cook it…lol Check out this link for a Recipe for Jamaican breakfast Fritters.
