Stove Top Stew Chicken

There are so many great Black chefs out there that are making their mark on this world, especially during quarantine that our mouths are watering. There is one chef that was recommended to us and when we saw the name, @justaddhotsauce_ on instagram, we knew we had to check it out. Her name is Alex Hill and she is the creator of not only, but also @cookingwithfriends. This is her take on Jamaican Stew Chicken and it.IS.Delicious! I had to put the periods in there to emphasize just how good it is! Two words: Mind Blown! Check out the recipe below:


– 1 whole chicken, cut up in pieces (leg, thigh, breast, wings) & skin removed
– 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, finely minced
– 1 red pepper, finely chopped
– 1 (thumb sized) knob of ginger, finely minced
– 3 or 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
– 4 green onions, sliced
