When it comes to Trini cuisine this (curry chicken) is one of the recipes that are high on the list of popular dishes next to roti and curry channa and aloo. They are like triplets: a good roti just wouldn’t be complete with ones of these missing. They are like the foundation upon which all the other sides are added like bodi, fry ochro and curry mango.
The Secret to a Good Curry Chicken
Since I did this curry chicken recipe a long time ago I thought it would be great to do another but different curry chicken post this time with better pictures. As you will notice this curry chicken recipe is quite easy, and with the right ingredients you will have your guests begging for more in no time.
For me I believe the real secret to a good curry chicken is seasoning and marinating the chicken properly, at least, for 3 hours. This will give the seasoning time to really infuse into the chicken. And when you’re cooking the curry chicken you allow the chicken to simmer in it’s own juices.
So without further ado, here’s how to make curry chicken trini style. This is a very easy recipe to follow step by step; you just can’t go wrong. 🙂
