Today I’m sharing with you a recipe for a sort of Jerk Stew Chicken that has quickly become a staple in my household.   It’s requires just a few ingredients that I always have on hand which makes it quite convenient, the fact that it’s downright delicious is an added bonus. JerkStewChicken-1  Store bought jerk seasoning seasons this dish delicately; this dish does is not spicy which is typical of jerk, instead the BBQ sauce and ketchup cools it down.  Served with rice and you have the perfect weeknight meal.

Jerk Stew Chicken

Jerk Stew Chicken

8 pieces chicken, I used leg and thigh

¾ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper

1 tbsp oil

1 onion, diced

2 tbsp jerk seasoning

2 tbsp ketchup

2 tbsp BBQ sauce

1 tbsp champagne vinegar

½ cup water

Sprinkle salt and black pepper on both sides of the chicken.  Place oil in a large stew pot over medium heat, when oil is hot add chicken skin side down and cook until brown, about 3 minutes.   When skin is brown, flip chicken to the other side and allow that side to brown.   While chicken cooks, in a small bowl mix jerk seasoning, ketchup, BBQ sauce, champagne vinegar and water.   Next add onion to the pot with the chicken and cook for 1 minute.  Next add sauce then bring to a boil.   Lower to a simmer then cover pot and cook for 35 minutes or until the sauce has thickened.   Remove from heat and serve over rice.

    Jaye, just continue to cook until the sauce thickens. As the liquid evaporates the sauce will thicken.
