Brown Chicken Stew

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 teaspoons garlic, minced
  • 1 sprig fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon of hot sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika

  6. Cover and cook on medium to low heat for about 20 minutes, until chicken the chicken has cooked through and the sauce thickens, slightly. Adjust the taste adding more salt as necessary.
  7. Serve with Caribbean Rice and Peas or white rice.
