Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thighs
  • 2 tablespoons Jamaican curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ½-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 teaspoon adobo seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Add the chicken thighs to a large bowl with all of the spices (curry powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, adobo seasoning and salt). Add diced yellow onion, minced garlic cloves and olive oil to the bowl.
  • Mix everything together with a spoon or massage with your hands until all sides of the chicken are coated with the seasonings. Cover the bowl and marinate the chicken for at least 30 minutes, but ideally for a few hours.
