Chicken Yumbo

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Tassie Chef

I came across a similar recipe but made with lamb called 'Arminian Lamb' I have adapted this and used chicken instead and because I think it is yummy have called it Chicken Yumbo in keeping with the Caribbean theme.

This was really good. I omitted the peppers because we dont care for them. I used crushed tomatoes and 1 small onion. This was really good, I liked how the rice turned out! Will make the again!! Thanks
