Jamaican Breakfast-Brown Stewed Chicken

I had dinner with some friends last month and we started to chat about food. They asked what was my favorite breakfast, lunch and dinner foods. Without hesitation, I told them dasheen, boiled green bananas, dumplings and brown stewed chicken for breakfast. I cooked it the next day, so here is the recipe for you to try. Jess and Violeta, this one is also for you ladies.

1lb Chicken Thighs, chopped
1/2 Green Bell Pepper
1/2 Onions
2 Carrots(chopped)
1 Large Potato (diced)
1 Cap Tastefully Simple Garlic Garlic
1 Packet of Chicken Bouillon
1 Tsp Onion Salt
1Tbsp Browning Sauce
1Tbsp Brown Sugar
Olive Oil
4 Stalks Scallion 

Green Cooking Bananas

Season meat with chicken bouillon, onion salt, pepper,onion, garlic garlic, scallion and thyme and let marinate for at least an hour. Add browning sauce (picture below) and stir to distribute evenly over the meat. Transfer seasoned meat to heated olive oil and simmer for 5 minutes. Add carrots, potato, 1 cup of water and sugar and let cook for 25-30 minutes on medium heat. Stir half way to ensure that the meat cooks evenly. 

In a separate pan, bring salted water to boil. Peel dasheen (picture below), banana and make a dough with flour, salt and water and boil all 3 three for 20 minutes.
