Dinner :: Chef John’s Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken

I made Chef John’s Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken. It was delicious!
I thought it was a tad bitter, but it did burn to the bottom a little so I think that was it. I used all the sugar in the marinade, but I didn’t add any in the final steps. It was not too sweet. I also used tomato sauce instead of ketchup because I was afraid of the sweetness.

Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken
If you make this, be aware…it’s not really 8 servings I don’t think.
I used only 5 thighs (that’s how many came in the package) but used full amounts for everything else. So I expected to get 4 servings, and that was about right (one of us had 2 pieces of chicken).

I don’t see how the sauce/stew would be enough for 8 people. I would double the sauce for 8 thighs.

Note peppers are not in the list of ingredients, but they are in the instructions. I used the tiny orange peppers from Imperfect Foods.
