My Evening Meal

Behold My Evening Meal: A delight for all occasions called Slavko's Caribbean Chicken. Herein is its unrivalled Perfection:


1 lb of chicken thigh fillets, cut into bite sized pieces
1 onion, roughly chopped
1 red pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
3 cloves of garlic, chopped
4 plum tomatoes, quartered
1 small can of pineapple chunks
2 small green chillis, chopped
4 tbsp tomato puree
1 inch or so of ginger, grated
1 can of coconut milk
Juice of one lime
2 tsp mild curry powder
1 tsp brown sugar
Olive oil


Brown the chicken fillets in a heavy-based skillet in olive oil and then remove to one side. Next, fry the onion, peppers, garlic, and chillis for about five minutes. This done, add the the ginger and fry for another minute or so. Next, add the coconut milk, the lime juice, the tomatoes, the tomato puree, the sugar, and the curry powder and stir. Once you have, add the chicken. Bring to the boil and then simmer for about 25 minutes or until the sauce is thickened. Five minutes before the end, toss in the pineapple chunks. Season if necessary. Finally, serve with plain boiled rice.


The sort of meal that God would cook if He only possessed my culinary skills. Truly, my genius in the kitchen is yet again confirmed.

May I delicately point out that Slavko isnt the most West Indian of names.Why not "Joes Jump up chicken?" or "Dem is Ras Clarts dat not lik' mi chikky"?
