This recipe is for a curried chicken, I figure my audience wasn’t ready to have a curried goat recipe just yet but this dish is easy to prepare and full of the Caribbean flavors. This recipe has some techniques that I learned from my Indian friends in South Africa which is why I fry the curry powder in the oil before I add the remaining ingredients. Enjoy!
