    Sounds good to me! I’ve never tried any food from Trinidad before.

    You should try it. It’s a different world of taste.

    My grandmother would add the chicken directly to the browned sugar and once the chicken was coated she would then tip a small amount of water into the pot and cover for it to simmer. During the chicken coating process she was constantly stiring and turning the chicken.

      I also use the same method…NO OIL ;-)

    That’s the way I also do it sometimes as well but it requires a little more skill than to just throw in the water to stop the caramelizing process and then add the meat. You really have to know what you’re doing :). In any case, from experience, both methods ( water before or after) realizes the same delicious stew chicken. Thanks for your comment and do stop by again.

    Despite my Trini stepmother’s mean persona, she was also a mean cook. I remember her making this when I first met her (she had met my father while she lived in Trinidad, got married, and moved to Florida.)

    She usually served it with pita bread. I can’t wait to make this here in MD!! Thank you for posting. :)

    how do i cook a mean stew goat? do i follow the recipe like the stewed chicken and substitute goat for chicken? or is there a technique i don’t know about?

    Hi Dora,

    For the goat you will have to pressure cook it first before stewing and instead of using water while stewing the goat use the stock. Now that you mentioned it I will have to do a stew goat for you to see. I already did curry goat.

    The potato is put in last before the chicken is done. So don’t put it in too early. Also you may have to adjust your seasonings to taste since potato absorbs salt while cooking. Other than that you’re good to go :-)

    Have you all ever eaten macaroni and cheese with liver…it is divine. Would dare someone to put that recipe out there.
