Enjoy this perfect Caribbean meal by adding the potatoes to the broth at the beginning of the cooking period.


  • Marinade:2 lbs chicken thighs, bone in and skin on
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp Scotch bonnet pepper sauce
  • 1/4 tsp powdered ginger
  • 1/4 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp cilantro, finely chopped
  • 1 scallion
  • Curry:1 Tbs vegetable oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, sliced
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tbs curry powder
  • 1 tsp amchar masala
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup of water
  • 2 potatoes, cut into large cubes


  • Wash and pat dry chicken thighs. In a sealable container, combine all marinade ingredients. Toss chicken in marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • In a Dutch oven, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until tender. Add garlic and continue to sauté until fragrant.
  • Sprinkle onions and garlic with curry powder and stir to evenly coat. Add 1 tablespoon of water and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.
  • Add chicken and marinade. Sauté until lightly browned, about 5 minutes.
  • If you want a thick curry, add potatoes now; otherwise, set aside.
  • Sprinkle chicken with amchar masala, cumin, and salt. Toss to coat. Pour in one cup of water and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat, cover pot and simmer for 20 minutes. If you reserved the potatoes for a thinner curry, add them to the pot after 20 minutes.
  • Continue to simmer for an additional 20 minutes until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165°F and potatoes are cooked through.
  • Serve warm with roti or rice.
