Stewed Chicken


1 chicken (2 -3 lbs), cut up in 1/8 or 1/16, seasoned and marinated for at least an hour

3 cloves garlic, chopped

3 tbsp brown sugar

1 small onion, chopped

1 sprig chive, chopped

2 sprigs fine leaf thyme, chopped

2 tablespoon vegetable oil

1 tsp tomato paste or ketchup if you like

green seasoning (blended shadow benny, celery and chive)

salt (to taste)

hot pepper (to taste)



Season meat by mixing in a large bowl with green seasonings, garlic and onion

Heat a deep heavy pot on a medium fire. Add the sugar to the pot until it is nice and golden brown.

Add the seasoned meat and about 1/4 cup 0f water.

Turn mixture until the meat is nice and coated.

Cover the pot and let simmer for about 5 -10 minutes. Notice how the meat ‘springs’ water.

Burn off a little of the excess water.

Add 1 1/2 cups of water to just cover the chicken.

Add salt, pepper and chopped herbs.

Cook for about about 25 – 30 mins or until the meat is tender.

You may add a tablespoon of tomato ketchup for taste.
