Jamaican Chicken Curry

If you enjoy eating dishes with Curry this is a very good one.
It is fairly easy to make and turns out to be a great dinner.

Jamaican Chicken Curry
from Everyday Food

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
4-6 skinless chicken breast halves
coarse salt and pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 garlic clove , minced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons curry powder
1/2 teaspoon thyme
4 carrots , thinly sliced
1 can (15 oz) coconut mil
1 package ( 10 ounces) frozen peas, thawed

Cooked white rice for side dish

In a large Dutch oven or heavy pot,
heat oil over medium high heat.
Season chicien with salt and pepper.
Brown chicken for 3-4 minutes each side.

Reduce heat to medium. Add onion,
garlic, cumin, curry, thyme and 1/2 cup
water ( I used broth) and season with salt.
Cook, stiring occasionally, until onion
has softened, 3-5 minutes.

Add carrots, coconut milk, 1/2 cup water
and chicken with any accumulated juices.
Bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer,
cover partially, and cook until chicken
is cooked through and carrots are tender,
about 10 minutes. Remove from heat
and stir in peas.
Serve over rice.

Ahh......... wonderful
