Jamaican Curried Chicken

ch1Sweet potatoes and chicken go really well together. This meal has a bit of heat and spice – and is full of flavor. I added rice with it today, but you can serve it with any other grains or rice, or can eat it by itself.


12 oz. chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups sweet potatoes, cubed
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 green pepper,chopped
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons curry powder
1/4 cup of water
1 clove garlic
olive oil

ch3Heat up a bit of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and green peppers. Cook together for about 5 minutes. Add the chicken, curry, and cayenne and stir together for a few minutes. Then add the potatoes and mix together until the chicken is no longer pink out the outside. Slowly pour the water in turn the heat to low and cover. Let it simmer together for about 15 minutes.

ch2This will serve 2-3 with some rice or another grain. Will serve 4 if you serve a side dish of sorts. I’m often cooking for 2 people and with a meal like this I generally don’t make side dishes, but would like to share what to expect if you’re feeding a crowd!
