Trini Stew Chicken (Not Spicy)

"I make this dish for my husband quite often, it takes some time but it's worth it in the end. We can't stop eating it. If you like heat, add a scotch bonnet pepper. This is a good dish to eat with rice and any side you like, a salad or macaroni pie. Hope you like it and Enjoy! (This is my version, not authentic but it's sure tasty)"

  • Peel and cut medium onion in half. Slice. Put half the onion in a large bowl and the other half in a small bowl (for frying). Peel and mince garlic. Add it to the small bowl of onions for frying. Rinse and chop both tomatoes and add it to the large bowl. Rinse and chop the green onion, add it to the large bowl. Wash and chop up the handful of cilantro, add it to large bowl. Cut the lime in half and begin to prepare the 9 drumsticks.
  • Put chicken in a large bowl, add water until it covers the chicken. Squeeze lime juice in the water and put the peel in the water. Wash chicken, and pour out the water. Add more water until it covers the chicken again. Add white vinegar and wash the chicken. Pour out the water. Peel skin off the chicken ( if desired).

  • Get a large pot, turn heat to medium and add oil. Add the small bowl of onions and garlic to the oil and sauté for 5 mins or when you see some garlic pieces turning brown.

Now add mushroom soy sauce and oyster sauce. Mix. Cover with the lid for 15 minutes and let the natural juices come out. After 15 minutes, take the lid off, and mix. Let the chicken juices evaporate, till there is a thick gravy and very little liquid left. Keep an eye on it. 15 minutes After 15 minutes, add water until it barely covers the chicken. Let it come to a boil and wait 15 -20 minutes until it reaches the gravy consistency you want. Turn off the stove and your done! Enjoy with some rice, salad and some macaroni pie!
