Curry Chicken wings for a Quick Caribbean Meal

Sometimes a quick meal is in order and these Curry Chicken wings are an easy go to you can throw together in no time!

I often buy chicken wings and don’t have a clue what I’m going do with them. I just find they are one of the most versatile parts of the chicken and sometimes drums and thighs can get a little boring. They are also pretty cheap!

Chicken curry is a staple in my house being as we are both from the islands. My mom would often make curried chicken wings because it was pretty quick for a stewed dish.

Tips on making Curry Chicken Wings

First you need to wash and season your wings like you would a regular curry. You want to marinate your chicken so it can soak in all that extra goodness. You’ll want to let it marinate at least a few hours.

You need to burn your curry before you add in your chicken. Why? well, they say raw curry will poison you ( not sure if thats true). but it also helps to flavor the pot. So go ahead and put your pot on medium heat and add about 3tbs of oil, let that heat then add in around 2Tbs of curry powder. I also add in a spring or 2 of fresh thyme.

Once you see the curry brown, you can add in your chicken. Try to separate your onions, garlic and herbs, you’ll put those in later. Brown on both sides of your chicken then cover with your lid and let it create its own water. Double check it after 15-20 minutes to make sure you start to see liquid.

Your chicken will nearly bee cooked through so now you want to add in your veggies. Add in a little water (about 1/4 cup) to your existing gravy. You want to make sure you have enough to cook your veg and create gravy. Add in more if you desire.

once your veg is soft your DONE. You should notice you also have a thickened gravy. It won’t be as thick as some with coconut milk or cornstarch but the potato is a great thickener without the extra fat.

What to Eat with Curry Chicken Wings

Anything you like! I did a simple coconut rice but you can have rice and peas, plain rice, roti, steamed veggies. Its all up to you!

AuthorsefordDifficultyBeginner

Its a quicker way to enjoy your classic curry chicken, but with the best part. The Wings of course.
And they are fall of the bone good!

 

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time10 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time40 mins

 1 lb Chicken wings (large package)
 2 tbsp Fresh Thyme
 2 Garlic cloves
 1 Scotch bonnet pepper
 1 Onion chopped
 1 Medium potato (optional)
 2 tbsp curry powder
 2 tsp all purpose
 1 tsp salt
 ½ cup sweet peppers sliced

1

Wash your chicken with vinegar or lemon. I rinse a few times and let it sit in a bath mixture of vinegar water or lemon water. This will kill off any bacteria.

2

Drain all liquid and add in all your seasonings, herbs and veg.
Let your mix marinate for at least 30 min to 1hr.

3

In a medium sized pot heat up 2Tbs of oil. Add in 2tsp of curry powder (im guessing here. eyeball it and add as much as you like) and let the curry brown in the oil.

4

Once your curry has browned you will add in your chicken.
Try to separate your herbs and veg from the chicken. You will add these in later. Its ok if you miss a few pieces.

Brown your chicken on both sides before adding your lid.

5

Once you add your lid, check your chicken in around 15 - 20 minutes to see if it has created its own gravy. Once you see this, cover for another 10 min or so.

After 10 minutes (or so) you can now add in your marinated veg. Add about 1/4 cup of water to your pot. This will help the veg to cook and add more liquid for your gravy.

6

Once your veg is cooked your dish is ready to serve.

Serve with Coconut rice, rice and peas, steamed veg, roti, you name it!
