Look at this yumminess! You too can make it. I promise.

I enjoy eating foods from all over the world. A friend of mine made a West Indian dish that I loved, and I enjoy curry, so I put together what I remember and a little but of what I read online. When I took a picture of this and posted it on my Facebook page, my friend Lee, asked for the recipe. “What recipe? I don’t have no stinkin’ recipe!” So, I promised her I would create a recipe for her! With that said, “Here’s to you, Lee!”

Leg quarters.

As a single Mom, in graduate school, cooking on a budget, with a growing I look for things that are simple but tasty. Not only is this simple and tasty, but it is one that does not break the bank. When I go to the store I typically buy a large bag of chicken quarters, cut them up, and season them. To create different meals I take 7-8 pieces and season them with one set of spices, and another 7-8 pieces with another, and so on, then, freeze them. For this dish I season 5-6 pieces of chicken with cumin, coriander, salt and pepper, and froze them. No measuring, just as I want.

Now to the recipe!
