Jamaican stew chicken with burnt sugar

burnt sugar stew chicken

I used brown sugar instead of  food browning to give the chicken it's pretty brown colour and if you're wondering if the chicken is sweet and tastes sugary the answer is no.

Jamaican cut meat or chicken for stew into many pieces, not more than 2 inches long with the bones generally left intact. This adds flavour to the meat. However, I did not cut the chicken into small pieces. I used two legs and 2 wings. Remove the skin 


2 chicken legs and 2 wings, skin removed,washed with vinegar and water. Drain

1 tbsp. brown sugar

1 tsp. vegetable oil

1 cup water

1/2 tsp. of the following

chicken seasoning


black pepper


Finely chopped herbs

1 stalk escallion

1 clove garlic

Hot pepper to suit your taste

1/2 of one onion

1 tsp. thyme (fresh or dry)

Put chicken into a bowl and season with all the spices, salt and herbs. Cover and marinate for 30 minutes.


Heat the oil in a pot and add the sugar, stirring constantly. Caramelize the sugar until dark brown.

Add the seasoned chicken and stir well to coat. . Cover pot and cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly. (Do not add water as yet)


Pour in 1 cup of water,  cook over medium heat for 20 minutes or until chicken is fork tender


Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Simmer on low heat until gravy reaches the consistency that you like.
