Ingredients:

– Onions
– Tomato Paste
– Garlic
– Ginger
– Curry Powder
– Scotch Bonnet x 2
– Maggi Cube x 3/ Salt
Method: 
Chicken: Wash the chicken pieces in lemon water or vinegar good alternative is salt water. I do this just to get rid of the fat and to make sure my chicken is squeaky clean! haha!
– Once the chicken is washed sprinkle one cube of maggie or teaspoon of salt, then some mixed herbs, 2 cloves of
chopped garlic and about half a teaspoon of ginger. Rub seasoning into chicken then add the chicken into a pot, cover and leave to cook, you can add quarter cup of water to steam the chicken whilst it’s cooking. leave to cook for 30 mins.
Tomato sauce: 
Add the tomatoes into the blender/food processor, your scotch bonnets, red bell peppers (chopped) and blend for 40 seconds.
Add the chopped onions, 1 teaspoon of all purpose seasoning, Tomato paste to a heated pot of oil. Add a tablespoon of curry powder mix then leave to simmer for 3-4 minutes. Once this is done add your blended tomato mix and leave to cook on medium heat 30-35 mins.
Rice: Wash Rice x3 and add to pan leave to cook for 10-15 minutes 🙂
Once chicken is cooked,  add it to the tomato sauce mix together and leave to simmer for another 15 minutes. Once the time is up for this and the rice add to a plate and serve with salad.

  1. Hey i am def going to try this. As it looks yummy and tasty. However i have a question. Do you wash the chicken with lemon and vinegar? Or is it lemon OR vinegar? How much do you use?

  2. I love this kind of meal! I used to have it at my friends house and always wished they’d teach me how to make it lol.

    Glad you finally decided to make a blog Kezia! 🙂 xx
