Jamaican Style Curry Chicken
Updated: Dec 4, 2020
I love curry chicken the first time I ever had curry chicken is when I moved to Atlanta. I learned how to make curry chicken from a great chef “Chef Chris”.This is my version on how I make my curry chicken and it is delicious every time. Rich and hearty with a great flavor when you can't get the real thing in the islands. Try a variety of hot peppers to change the flavor - even sweet bell peppers give a different taste. .This has been one of my go-to dish /one pot dishes and it never disappointments me .
I love that it has an abundance of spices leaving it with incredible flavor. I also love coconut milk give the curry a creamy texture that I add at the end. The abundance of sauce great for what for soaking up with naan bread or serving alongside rice.
