Jamaican Curry Chicken and Potatoes with Scotch Bonnet Hot Peppers
This authentic Jamaican curry chicken recipe was adapted from a curry goat recipe. Although goat is the traditional meat used in this dish, it's hard to find and not very popular with the children. This recipe uses scotch bonnet pepper which is one of the hottest peppers in the world. Removing the seeds can moderate the heat, but if you don't like your food that hot, substitute with a milder pepper or pepper sauce.
Prep: 10 min
Cook: 10 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon freshly minced ginger
1 small Scotch Bonnet pepper, minced (do not touch face or eyes after handling; immediately wash hands)
1/2 stick butter
2 tablespoons Jamaican curry
1 1/2 pounds chicken, chopped into 1-inch pieces
2 large russet potatoes, chopped
1 (16-ounce) can coconut milk
8 ounces chicken stock
Heat the oil in a medium-size saucepot at a medium heat. Add the onions, ginger, and Scotch Bonnet peppers; let sauté for 5 to 8 minutes. Add butter and curry powder and let sit until curry powder turns a dark gold. Add the chicken and continue to cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Add the potatoes and cook for another couple of minutes before adding the coconut milk. Let simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. Serve.
