One-Pot Spicy Bahamian Chicken and Vegetables

Vickie Parks


This is an easy one-pot meal that packs a lot of spicy Caribbean flavors into one recipe. It's so convenient to prepare too, with only 10 minutes prep time, and the end result is a complete meal of spicy chicken and an assortment of roasted vegetables to serve along side the chicken. It's quite spicy, so use the chili peppers (or red pepper flakes) sparingly.
