Jamaican Spicy Chicken


  • Ingredients

  • 500g x Chicken thighs, boned and cut into 4cm pieces

  • 200ml x Chicken stock

  • 1 x Small red onion

  • 50ml x Lemon juice

  • 3 x Finely chopped spring onions

  • 6 x Full teaspoons Spice Roads Jamaican Spice Blend

  • 300g x Sweet potatoes, peeled and whole

  • 10 x Firm cherry tomatoes

Cut small slits in the chicken pieces and in a mixing bowl lightly coat with the lemon juice and sprinkle with the diced spring onions. Rub the Jamaican Blend thoroughly around the chicken and push into the slits. Mix well

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and preferably overnight for maximum flavour

Dice the red onion and fry in a heavy pan until soft then add the chicken pieces, chicken stock, tomato puree and the cherry tomatoes. Simmer over a low heat until meat is cooked. Be careful not to over cook the chicken !

In a separate pan boil the sweet potatoes until firm then slice into small squares and add to the chicken

To serve sprinkle the coriander leaves over the chicken

Important : Sea Salt and Black Pepper has been added to the Jamaican Blend.

Comment : In testing this recipe we served with well buttered potato mash and a four leaf crisp salad with green beans and halved stuffed green olives. Special !
