Haitian Chicken Stew

Aug 15, 2023 | Recipes

Poulet En Sauce (Haitian Chicken Stew) with a spin to make it easy for you to make at home.

Haiti is a very hot and humid country. Most of the population do not have access to a refrigerator or frozen ingredients. Most of the ingredients are bought the day the food will be prepared. Most ingredients are found in an outdoor market; some are covered, and others are not.

Once they arrive home, the meat is cleaned to perfection.


  • 1 pound Chicken
  • ½ Onion (diced)
  • 2 teaspoons Garlic (Minced)
  • 1 tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 4 sprigs Fresh Thyme
  • 4 sprigs Fresh Parsley
  • 1 Scotch Bonnet Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black Pepper
  • ½ Red Pepper Julienned
  • 1 Chicken Bouillon Cube
  • 1 tablespoon Adobo All Seasoning
  • ½ cup White Vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Tomato Paste

1 – Clean the chicken using the Haitian meat cleaning method. Clean the chicken with lemon or sour orange juice and vinegar. Rinse in hot water.

2 – Create a marinade with garlic, parsley, thyme, black pepper, chicken cube, and seasoning salt.

3 – Season the chicken with the marinade and let it marinade at least 15 min. Marinating the chicken overnight in the refrigerator will give the meat more time to take on the flavor.

4 -In a large saucepan,. brown the chicken on both sides. Add a half cup of water to the sauce pan along with the tomato paste, onions and peppers.

5 – Stew the chicken on medium high heat for 25 minutes.
6 – Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer until is ready to serve
