Chicken Country Captain

Submitted by: BUDGETMOM
Chicken Country Captain

Introduction

I love the curry and raisins together in this southern dish. Typically using a whole cut up fryer, I adapted it to use boneless skinless breasts. Serve over rice with cooked cabbage and sugar cookies for desert. I love the curry and raisins together in this southern dish.

Ingredients

    16 oz chicken, cut into cubes
    1/4 cup flour
    1/2 tsp salt
    dash pepper
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1 cup chopped green pepper
    1 cup onion, chopped
    1 clove garlic minced
    1 1/2 tsp curry powder
    1 15 oz can diced canned tomatoes
    1/4 cup raisins

Tips

You can substitute 3-4 skinless chicken quarters instead. Cover and simmer for 45 minutes instead. Everything else remains the same. This is a more traditional way to make Country Captain.


Directions

In a bag combine the flour, salt and pepper. Coat the chicken in the seasoned flour. Heat the oil in a large skillet. Lay in the chicken and fry it until it is brown on both sides. Take the chicken out, lay it on a large plate, and set it aside. Put the green pepper, onion, garlic, and curry powder into the pan. Fry them up until they are tender and fragrant. The onion should turn translucent. Return the chicken to the pan, laying it on top of the veggies. Add the tomatoes and raisins. Cover the pan and simmer the chicken for about 15 minutes. Add a little more water if the dish looks dry. Serve over brown rice or couscus.
