If You’re Brave, Stew Some Chicken on Friday

I’m always stewing chicken.  My husband is Trini, so it’s kind of requirement to being married to him.  What I love about stewing chicken is that if you pair it with some rice and veggies it can last for about 4 days.  All you need is a big pot, 2 large packs of chicken thighs, your favorite seasons and some rice.  Once your chicken is seasoned, it only takes about 1 hour to make dinner until Tuesday.  Check out the two chefs over at CookLikeAJamaican.com to see how the pros do it.
