1 While frozen, cut chicken in 1 ½ to 2 inch serving pieces. (If cut when frozen, the bones will not splinter and will be better enjoyed at eating time.)

2 Juice limes in water; quickly wash chicken in the water and drain.

3 Blend garlic, Escallion, and Ginger, leave for 30 minutes.

4 Mix curry powder and a pinch of Pimento with sugar and salt. Rub on chicken. Leave for a further hour.

5 Brown chicken in 2 tbsp. oil. Keep turning until curry powder is cooked. Add 2 cups of water and 3 medium potatoes cut in cubes. As soon as liquid starts boiling, turn down the heat and allow to simmer until chicken is cooked, approximately 20-30 minutes, chicken should be tender.

6 Dress up curry chicken with accompaniments and serve with flair. The usual accompaniment is Mango Chutney, but slices of dried Coconut without the dark skin, pineapple chunks, orange segments, ripe Bananas, raisins, grated carrot, cucumber slices and yoghurt, can be served.
