Haitian Chicken in Sauce

Haitian Chicken in Sauce created by 561emma

This recipe was found on islandflave.com & this way I was able to obtain the correct amounts of the ingredients & proper cooking times. I have enjoyed making this chicken for a long time now, as it was given to me in Creole and without amounts. It is great the following day, that is if you have any left.Update: 07/18/2009 so as to make some more of the sauce w/out lessening all the good flavors, this time we made it with 6 cloves of garlic, 3/4 cup crushed tomatoes,1/4 cuo brandy or cognac & added broth as needed - low-sodium, low-fat chicken broth! As far as the peppers go I love Scotch Bonnet Peppers and their flavor is wonderful! As I was going to serve this to our friends - one of the kitchen aides asked me if I wouldn't put sliced olives in the dish and we did and it tasted awesome - on white rice or brown rice, if you choose and with string beans almondine.;)

    I know for a fact a Haitian didn't write this. First of all how dare you?!! I get it not all of us Haitians cook the same way but get the heck out of here with the sugar bs. We certainly DO NOT cook our chicken with sugar. Second prior with cooking the chicken we clean it with lemon/lime and salt some prefer white vinegar. After cleaning the meat, rinse it with water. Then pour hot water on the meat. We then add our homemade epice to it. we don't pat dry chicken (the fuc**). We cut bell peppers, habenero peppers, and add thyme. Then we move on to the next step.

    It's definitely not Haitian chicken if you add curry powder. we do not use curry. but I'm sure it was really good. Best way is to make haitian epis, (basically the ingredients listed) blended Into sauce and rub on chicken after cleaning!!

    This recipe was phenomonal! It was the first time I made Haitian chicken in sauce and when I served it to them, they thought I was a natural! (I never informed them that I was a novice) I did however, add a few extra spices to the sauce and the chicken itself. Curry powder was the ultimate spice that gave this recipe an extra kick! Definitely my permanant way of making Haitian Chicken in Sauce!
