    1. 1
      Mix the achiote paste with the vinegar and rub it all over the chicken pieces.
    2. 2
      Put the pieces in a large bowl and add the Worchestershire, cumin, thyme, oregano and black pepper.
    3. 3
      Chop the onion, pepper and garlic and set aside.
    4. 4
      Melt the coconut oil in a large saucepan. When it has melted completely, add the sugar and swirl to distribute.
    5. 5
      Remove the chicken from the bowl, reserving the marinade, and brown both sides in the oil and sugar mixture.
    6. 6
      Add the onions, peppers and garlic. Saute until the onions are translucent.
    7. 7
      Add the reserved marinade to the pot and then add enough water to "almost cover" the chicken. Let simmer for 40 minutes to an hour, until the chicken is tender and the juices run clear. Adjust the seasonings if necessary.

      Thank you! This Belizean Stewed Chicken recipe was right on the money. FLAVORFUL!!! After traveling to Belize this summer, we've been looking for a recipe that recreates the wonderful Belizean Stew Chicken. THIS IS IT! A Note: Be careful to not overcook or the chicken will dry out. It is important to cook it uncovered so the water will simmer down to a broth that can then go over rice or the chicken if you want. We did chicken thighs with skin on and two boneless, skinless breasts (those got a little dry - again we overcooked it a bit - our fault). Also, the coconut oil fries HOT - so be careful to use a medium setting to brown the chicken. We brought Red Recado back with us from Belize, and it worked great. Wonderful flavor in this dish.
