Portions: 100 servings

Portion Size: 6 oz. cooked (~2 thighs)


200 each, 4-5 oz. chicken thighs, bone-in, skin on

10 lbs. diced onion

7 lbs. diced red bell peppers

¾ cup chopped garlic

¾ cup paprika

¾ cup curry powder

1 ½ tsp. cayenne pepper

1 ½ cups flour

3 quarts chicken stock

1 ½ (#10) cans diced tomatoes (1 gal plus 3 cups)

  • Sauté the onions and bell pepper in the tilt pan for about 5 minutes.

  • Add the garlic, paprika, curry powder and cayenne and cook until spices are fragrant, about 30 seconds.

  • Stir in the flour and cook for 2 minutes.

  • Add the stock, tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme, raisins and mango and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and cook for 10 minutes.
