Bringing a little HEAT to the Fall season with Curry Chicken

Standard

I absolutely love authentic curried chicken and I believe its a meal where you can’t go wrong…whether you make it on the stove top, in the oven, or in the crock pot curry chicken is usually a winner.

I got up early yesterday am in preparation for my day and prepped my chicken because I knew I was going to have a long day and I was not going to be in the mood to prepare food once I got home.

So after my wondrful workout, I was ready to sit down and thoroughly enjoy my meal that while may have taken ALL DAY to cook, it was delish !

Check the recipe here…

Ingredients

-1 large pack of chicken wings (I used to small packs; 1 pack of 6 and another pack of 7. I cleaned them well and broke them down into wing portions)

-1 large garlic clove minced

-1 spring of a green/spring onion

-4 small red potatoes chopped

-2 containers of chicken broth

-1/2 cup of Jamaican Curry Powder (There is a difference between Indian Curry and Jamaican Curry)

-Scotch Bonnet peppers or sauce. (If you use the peppers, you only need 1 very finely chopped, if you use the sauce, just a few dashes will do fine)

-Cracked Pepper

-Crushed Red Pepper

-Sea Salt

-Tabasco

-Water
