    Chef #1115831's Note:

    I'm Jamaican and this is the way my Mama made brown stew chicken. It's traditionally served with rice and peas, sliced tomatoes / avocado and fried ripe plantain. If you cut the chicken into very small pieces, you'll need to reduce the cooking times. Enjoy!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Squeeze lime over chicken and rub well. Drain off excess lime juice.
    2. 2
      Combine tomato, scallion, onion, garlic, pepper, thyme, pimento and soy sauce in a large bowl with the chicken pieces. Cover and marinate at least one hour.

      I am Jamaican and I honestly must say that some of the ingredients are wrong. Jamaican stewed chicken does not have coconut milk. The chicken is to be dark brown and most Jamaicans will use catchup as a thickening agent but never flour. You need to revisit the recipe again because this is not a Jamaican recipe.

      I've made this dish twice in the last week. Once for my house and 4 days later for an Aunt who made a special request. The only thing is, I had to add salt and a little browning to get the desired coloring I prefer. Otherwise, AWESOME dish.
