Whenever I think Jamaican food, I think so much flavor, but so much work to achieve that flavor! This recipe makes flavor easy and achievable with the use of a crock pot.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 4 hours

Total Time: 4 hours, 15 minutes

Yield: 4-6

This can be served over steamed brown rice alongside a simple tossed green salad.


3 pounds chicken drumsticks and thighs on the bone

2 teaspoons curry powder

1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme

3/4 teaspoon ground allspice

1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons olive oil

1 medium onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup red wine

1 1/2 cups (15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 1/2 cups (15 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained


Toss chicken with curry powder, thyme, allspice, red pepper flakes, black pepper and salt.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Add onions and garlic and saute until onions are softened, about 3 minutes. Add chicken mixture to skillet and brown on both sides. Add wine and let cook for a few minutes. Add tomatoes and black beans and mix well. Transfer to crock pot and cook in high for 4-5 hours until tender and meat is falling off the bone. Alternatively, you can continue to cook the chicken on the stove top for about 25-30 minutes until chicken is done.
