Jamaican Chicken CurryPosted: August 3, 2013
haven’t made curry chicken in a minute, so i decided to run it since my co-worker is from the virgin islands and he’s never had it (he moved here when he was a kid). it’s one of those dishes that sticks to your ribs and has that exotic, yet homey feel to it. and….it’s not that hard to make. matter of fact, i wouldn’t be surprised if even Kenny showed some amazement that i rocked this.
for this dish i used:
2 chicken breasts
1 small onion
1 can chopped tomatoes (drained)
3 cloves garlic
8 TBS jamaican curry powder (see pic below)
1 cup bread crumbs
2 cups chicken broth (or water)
chop the chicken into cubes, place in a bowl. add the bread crumbs (i use 1/2 cup per breast) and egg and mix until it forms a paste. sauté onion and garlic over medium heat. add chicken and brown slightly. add curry powder (i use 4 TBS per breast, but adjust according to taste), mix in well. add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil while stirring. once it starts to boil, drop heat to low and cover. let it cook 1 hour (stir every 15 minutes or so). uncover and bring to boil again. once it starts to boil drop heat to low and let it cook for 30-45 minutes, so it can reduce. remove from heat and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. ladle over white rice.
enjoy. c’est si bon.
and since Uncle Mitch came down, my living room looks like a fucking armory. we’re going shooting this weekend and he brought some of his girls. he has a SICK .45acp rifle. we’re gonna have so much fun.
also, since it’s summer. let me introduce you to the Alpha drink for poolside lounging that girls will hit you up for. i lived in southern spain from 2007- late 2009. the summer drink of choice is NOT sangria, but “tinto”. yup, it’s officially called “tinto del verano”. it’s a simple mixture of red wine and lemon santa (i prefer casera, but you can’t get it here so go with diet 7-up). it’s 2 parts wine to 1 part soda. serve with 3-4 ice cubes. it’s fucking delish, and most american women have never heard of it. when they ask what you’re sipping, tell them and explain how it’s the official summer drink of andalusia. from there make up any story you want as to how you came across such a concoction. i’d run with, “i have a friend that spent some time there and he told me about it. tried it, and DAMN is it tasty.”
happy hunting fellahs.
