Curried Chicken Recipes

We love curried chicken recipes in the Caribbean.

Curried Chicken is a classic and authentic dish glowing with the color of curry, chunks of chicken, potatoes and carrots.

Depending on your tolerance for heat you can throw all the chilli seeds or scotch bonnet seeds, or keep half, or be brave, and put them all in the dish. This could get real hot, or may I say real spicy! For my dish, I'd choose the seeds anytime.
