Island Curried Chicken

Recipe by Virgaux78

I found this dish in Essence magazine from February of 2006. My husband's family is from Jamaica and I haven't quite mastered curry, but this is a simple curried chicken recipe with a lot of flavor in a short amount of time.

Nice flavor, but it needs more onion and potatoes.
