Red-Roasted Chicken Stir-Fry (recipe)

Red-Roasted Chicken Stir-Fry (recipe)
From Natural Health Magazine: This stir-fry is inspired by the flavors of traditional Chinese red roasting, which derives its special character from the use of dark soy, Shaoxing wine and rock sugar.

Oven BBQ Chicken (recipe)

Oven BBQ Chicken (recipe)
This post was originally published on August 22, 2007. It has been updated once since then Summer is the time to fire up the grill… at least that’s what the US food programs and magazines tell me. Here in Trinidad, I’ve never really known or been part of a huge grilling or BBQ culture. As a kid there was a time when my father went on a BBQ kick, that lasted about a month after which... 

Kung Pao Chicken (recipe)

Kung Pao Chicken (recipe)
A very simple fiery and flavourful chicken dish that comes together quickly. The most unexpected part of the flavour medley is the candy-like sweetness of the fried (until charred) sweet peppers. From Wikipedia: Kung Pao chicken (also spelled Kung Po chicken) is a classic dish in Sichuan cuisine, originating in the Sichuan Province of central-western China. The dish is named after Ding Baozhen (1820–1886),... 

Bertie’s Trinidad Pelau (recipe)

Bertie's Trinidad Pelau (recipe)
This post was originally published on September 17, 2008. It has been updated twice since then. My father’s pelau is (not surprisingly) my favourite and has been a staple over the long Carnival weekend in my family, for as long as I can remember. Now my father is a man with a very narrow cooking repertoire, but what he does do he does well. You’ve already experienced his truly excellent...

Chicken Cacciatore (recipe)

Chicken Cacciatore (recipe)
Big Night, was a movie that I knew nothing about until becoming aware of it via Joelen’s Culinary Adventures “Foodie Film” event. Warm and poignant the movie centers around the ambitions of two brothers, Italian immigrants to the US, intent on making their dreams of bringing authentic Italian cuisine to the masses a reality. The passion which the main chef ‘Primo’ has... 

Braised Chicken in Coconut Milk “Opor Ayam” (recipe)

Crisp Lemon Chicken (recipe)

Crisp Lemon Chicken (recipe)
Roasts have always intimidated me. When I first started getting into cooking as a hobby they were one of the first things that I attempted, and let’s just say the results were often on the ‘slightly raw’ side. As a result, my family and I agreed that I would give whole birds an indefinite vacation and venture on to other culinary shores. Now 8 years later, it came time to confront... 

Sarina’s Savoury Peanut Chicken (recipe)

Sarina's Savoury Peanut Chicken (recipe)
Every since I learned that peanuts and chicken are a traditional pairing in many African cultures I have been intrigued and curious to try the combination myself. As Emancipation Day drew near I figured what could be a more perfect time to bite the bullet, or should that be “bite the peanut”? I marinated several chicken thighs in a combination of mint jelly, mustard, and pepper sauce... 

Jamaican Fricassee Chicken (recipe)

Jamaican Fricassee Chicken (recipe)
Jamaican fricassee chicken is one of my mother’s favorite dishes. As a result I have submitted this recipe to FF#2: Your Mother’s Favorite Dish. The end result looks quite similar to Trinidad Stewed Chicken (something I should post soon!) but the taste is quite different due to the sweet peppers and the lack of sugar browning (a technique my mother says she never knew before moving...

I love recipes that come together in a flash with minimal prep and cleanup. This is one of those recipes and it was delicious! It comes from the GraceFoods.com website. For those who don’t already know Grace is one of the largest (if not largest) producers of canned goods in Jamaica. Their products can be found throughout the Caribbean as well as overseas and their website is certainly one... 

Quick Coconut Chicken Pelau (recipe)

Quick Coconut Chicken Pelau (recipe)
Pelau is one of Trindad’s signature national dishes and I would argue its also our definitive one-pot meal. This is the meal that we make whenever we have informal gatherings (‘limes’) either at home, at a river or on the beach. It also feeds hungry revellers at Carnival time and provides a comfortable rhythm to a lazy Sunday afternoon. Cooked in coconut milk and seared in caramelized...
