Fricassee chicken

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 \N Chicken - (4 lbs); cut 8 serving pieces
1 \N Juice of 1 lime
2 mediums Yellow onions; peeled and sliced
2 \N Tomatoes; red ripe, coarsely chopped
3 \N Garlic cloves; peeled and crushed
3 \N Scallions; chopped
1½ teaspoon Dried thyme; whole
1 teaspoon Salt
½ teaspoon Freshly-ground black pepper
2 tablespoons Peanut oil
½ cup Water

Toss all the ingredients except the peanut oil and water in a large bowl and marinate for ½ hour. Drain the chicken, reserving the marinade and vegetables. Brown the chicken in a non-stick frying pan, using the oil. You should probably do this in two batches. Place the chicken in a 6- to 8-quart stove-top casserole and add the reserved marinade, including the vegetables, plus ½ cup of water. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Add more salt and pepper to taste. This recipe serves 4.

Comments: This is another classic from the Island. It is served in Jamaica and in Brooklyn with the same degree of pride. It is not overspicy, but the flavor is rich.
