chicken curry recipe – Jamaican Curried Chicken

Jamaican Curried Chicken

1 whole chicken, about 3 to 4 pounds
Juice of 2 fresh limes
3 large garlic cloves, finely minced
2 green onions, finely chopped
1/4 inch fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced
1 1/2 tablespoons curry powder
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups water
3 medium potatoes, washed and cubed
Suggested Accompaniments:
Mango Chutney
Slices of dried coconut
Fresh pineapple chunks
Orange segments
Ripe bananas

1. Cut chicken in 1 1/2 to 2-inch serving pieces. Squeeze the
juice of the limes into a large bowl of water; wash the chicken pieces
in the water and drain.
2. In small bowl mix the garlic, green onions and ginger; allow
flavors to blend for 30 minutes.
3. Mix curry powder and allspice with sugar and salt. Rub spice
mixture and the garlic mixture onto the chicken. Place in a glass
bowl; cover and allow to “marinate” for 1 hour.
4. In large heavy skillet, brown chicken in hot oil over
medium-high heat. Add the water and potatoes. As soon as liquid starts
to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until chicken is cooked,
approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Chicken should be tender and juices
run clear.
5. Dress up curried chicken with accompaniments served with
flair. The usual accompaniment is Mango Chutney, but slices of dried
coconut, pineapple chunks, orange segments, ripe bananas, will do.

Serves 4.
