Directions

Special equipment:
a deep-fryer
  1. For the all-purpose seasoning blend: Stir together the cayenne, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, rosemary and thyme in a bowl.
  2. For the chicken: Season chicken with 2 tablespoons all-purpose seasoning and allow to marinate, refrigerated, for 24 hours.
  3. For the dredge: Bring oil to 350 degrees F in a deep-fryer.
  4. Stir together the flour, salt and pepper in a bowl and dip the chicken in the mixture to coat. Fry until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. For the gravy: Blend the ginger in a blender with 1/2 cup water. Set aside.
  6. Add olive oil, garlic and onions to a saucepan on medium heat and saute until translucent and soft. Add stewed tomatoes and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose seasoning blend, thyme, bay leaf, Scotch bonnet pepper and 1 cup blended ginger (save the remainder for another use) and simmer for 30 minutes.
  7. Blend the flour with 1/4 cup water in a small bowl. Strain the gravy, then add flour mixture to thicken. Finish gravy with butter over low heat. Plate chicken with rice and peas, then spoon gravy over chicken and rice. Enjoy!
