Ingredients

  • 3 pieces chicken breasts (chopped into littel pieces)
  • 2-3 table spoons tomato paste
  • 3 plum tomatoes
  • 2red bell peppers
  • 1 habanero pepper
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika(optional)
  • 1tsp thyme
  • 1 sprig of thyme
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1tsp curry
  • 1tsp white pepper
  • 1tsp black pepper
  • 1 onion
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • ¼ tsp ginger paste
  • ¼ tsp nutmeg
  • 4 cups meat stock
  • ¼-1/2 cup oil
  • 1tbsp butter
garnish
  • 1 handfull onion
  • 1 handfull tomatoes
Instructions
  1. Blend tomatoes, peppers and half of the onion. Pour into a pot and boil until the water is dry and the blend looks like a paste.
  2. season chicken with salt and pan fry in a tsp of oil; then set aside.
  3. In the same pan you cooked the chicken, pour the remaining oil and butter, chop in the remaining onion and fry until translucent. Add the garlic and fry with the onion until fragrant; then add the bay leaf, thyme, curry, smoked paprika, white pepper and black pepper and stir into the onion and garlic mix for a minute. Add the tomato and pepper blend and fry for a minute or two. Mix the tomato paste with a bit of the meat stock or water and pour into the tomato blend. Fry until the oil has risen to the top;(remove any excess oil) then pour the mix into a well greased slow cooker or crock pot. The greasing of the crock pot helps to prevent burning.
  4. Add the rice and mix. Place the chicken on top the rice, add the water or meat stock, one sprig of thyme, salt and or bouillon. Cover and cook on high for 2½ to 3 hours; making sure to open the rice at the 3 hour mark to see if the rice needs more liquid. Once the rice is done, add the ginger, nut meg, and any other garnish like onion and tomato. Stir and enjoy
