    This Jamaican Chicken and Chickpea Curry recipe is similar to my other more traditional Jamaican chicken curry, however the difference with this recipe to my other is that this one has more chicken stock and chickpeas added to it.

    You can add in coconut milk during the last 10 minutes of cooking if you’d like for a more creamy taste. However I prefer a more authentic curried taste myself, also you can replace the chickpeas, with potatoes if desired. However if you choose to add potatoes instead you may want to add a bit more chicken stock

    And you can also replace the Scotch Bonnet pepper with the sauce as seen below. I will leave that all up to your personal preference. Using the sauce, prevents me from burning my eyes with the peppers so I much prefer to use this instead.

    Notes: Do not pressure cook chicken with the bones on as this may create loose bones in the curry.
