  1. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook the chicken, onions and garlic until the chicken has browned; about 5 minutes.
  2. Stir in potatoes, salt and curry powder; add enough water to cover the chicken halfway. Cover and simmer until tender, 30 to 40 minutes. Season to taste with hot pepper sauce.


If your local supermarket doesn't stock Jamaican curry powder, you will find it in speciality shops or online.
