Yesterday was Election Day though, so we were left to fend for ourselves.
Side note - before cooking any chicken dish, let it soak in a bowl of fresh lime juice and some water for about 20 minutes, swishing it around occasionally - it sucks out a bunch of extra fat and grossness.
In a large pot, combine all ingredients - chicken, peppers, onion, garlic, tomato, sweet potato, recado, black pepper, and whatever else you have handy.
We didn't have any fresh tomatoes, so he used a can of natural salsa instead. (By natural, I mean I could read all the ingredients - no poison.)
Next step - Thoroughly heat a little bit of coconut oil (or EVOO) in the frying pan, until it just starts smoking, and then add a lil bit of brown sugar. When the sugar is caramelized, add the chicken. Stew the chicken until the pan is dry, making sure you coat each piece of chicken with the oil and sugar while you're doing this.
This is also a good time to start cooking your coconut rice.
Once you're done frying, add the chicken back into the pot and "stew" it all together for about 20-30 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
While waiting, drink Belikin and play Dominoes.
The finished product - delicious!!
