This Jamaican recipe will have your spirit floating away on the warm trade winds. It one of many family recipes from immigrants, brought to you from the Library of Congress Recipe Section, which are accompanied by personal stories: "I remember as a little girl, my mom, who was very active in the church would season the chicken from the Saturday night, and the spices would fill the whole house. Then early Sunday morning she would cook the curried chicken and we would be so tempted to steal a piece of chicken before we left for Sunday School. Almost every Sunday my mom would invite someone over from church and we would enjoy this delicious dish, along with other native Jamaican dishes." We hope that you, too, will enjoy your house being filled with wonderful smells and memories!
3 lbs chicken breast (boneless, skinless)
1/2 cup curry powder (hot, mild or regular)
1 stalk green onion
1 medium onion
1 tsp. thyme salt & pepper to taste
1 tsp. Jamaican pimento (optional)
1 tbls. cooking oil Preparation Clean the chicken well, and cut into nice size pieces.
Add all of the spices to the chicken and marinate for no less than 3 hours. Brown the chicken slightly, while leaving some of the spices in the bowl. Add water to the bowl then pour into the pot.

I made this recipe a while ago, and when i was making it, I thought it called for way too much curry powder. But when I was eating it, I realized it didn't! Even my picky eater son liked it.
