So first things first! I’m clearly not Jamaican, so I don’t need anybody telling me this isn’t “authentic” Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken ok??? Ok! Lol

I found this recipe a few years ago and it was perfect to me. The gravy is sweet with hint of spice and the chicken is tender and juicy! Im not that good at making rice and peas yet but pairing it with white rice turns out just as good!
