Jamaican curry chicken patties are a popular Caribbean snack that is loved for their bold and spicy flavors. With the use of authentic Jamaican seasonings and spices, you’ll be able to create an irresistible and versatile treat that’s perfect for any occasion. Curry Chicken Patties are one my favorite Jamaican foods. I love these hand help pies/patties. I cannot always get a Jamaican restaurant to purchase them , So I decided to make my version but a easier version then have to make the dough from scratch . I used pastry dough. . These Curry Chicken patties are made with shredded chicken breast, frozen puff pastry dough, and a simple creamy chicken curry recipe and vegetable filling. So much flavor!
