Caribbean Curry Chicken

I’ll miss you Summer, but Fall has arrived!!! Fall is my favourite season because why not?!  Sweater weather, pretty leaves falling on the ground, and cozy nights at home. To celebrate the new season, I made Caribbean Curry Chicken with Potatoes! The vibrant curry colour reminds me of Fall. My dad is a chef who works at a Caribbean restaurant so he actually taught me how to make this dish. Thanks Dad! 🙂 It is super delicious – I wish you can smell it from wherever you are… He told me the secret to this dish is to add the spices to the onion and garlic to create a strong aroma as opposed to adding the curry powder and spices after the chicken.

Oh, this Caribbean Curry Chicken with potatoes is soooo yummy. I had buns at home so I actually made it into a sandwich, which turned out incredibly good! Kind of like a roti. But this is amazing with rice as well. Remember the secret to this recipe is to add the curry powder and spices before the chicken and potatoes, not during, and not after! It makes a big difference!
