This is PERFECT!! I have been craving for Caribbean chicken curry and I finally decided to try to make it. It was my first time and it turned out PERFECT! It was easy, simple and very tasty. I didn't have cinnamon stick but i don't think it would have made a difference to me. It was a bit too "soupy" so I added one tomato and a tTbs of constarch to thicken it up. This is definitely a keeper!!!! Thank you for sharing!!!!!

OMG! Absolutely amazing! I travel to the Caribbean all the time time and to recreate a dish like this was just gorgeous! I did use sweet potato instead and as I like thicker curry sauces I did mash some sweet potato to thicken the sauce and I also added a little cornflour/water mix to help it. I didn't mess with the recipe! So so flavoursome! I'll make this regularly. Absolutely fantastic!!!

This is a wonderful recipe however, as a Caribbean curry lover, I have made a couple of minor modifications. 1. Add a couple of finely chopped roma tomatoes to #7 for a richer sauce. 2. Watch the amount of curry powder called for as some mixes are hot. The recipe calls for Indian curry powder. West Indian curry powder - especially Jamaican - is a better choice as they are formulated very differently from the Indian powders and are more appropriate for this Caribbean recipe. Jamaican curry powder is available in any Jamaican/West Indian store. You may have to add more chili powder for a little more heat. I use Kashmiri Chili powder - called Kashmiri Mirch. It is available in the Indian grocery stores and adds just the right amount of heat and a nice color. Try serving with Jamaican Rice and Peas for a traditional side dish.

I made this dish this past weekend and my family LOVED it. I think a added a touch too much black pepper for spice, but other than that it was great and I know it'll be a favorite of ours.

Loved this. Very spicy and delicious. I didn't add all of the curry powder or it would have blown my head off (perhaps curry powder is spicier here in the UK) and I substituted some of the potatoes for sweet potatoes. Will definitely make this again and again.

Haven't had dinner yet, put the pot is doing final simmer. Early tastes tell me its a winner. I swapped the potatoes for plantains to add to the Caribbean character of the dish. While that left my sauce a bit thinner, a pinch of arrowroot seems to have done the trick. Lime wedges seem like a great complement to this dish. Looking forward to the leftovers.
