COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN
I found this recipe to be one of the best for Country Captain. I love the taste of the currants mixed with the garlic and stewed tomatoes. I've been making this for some time now, but didn't realize it's like chili . . . every region has a little twist or has a favorite dish that Mom used to make, especially in the South. Enjoy.

THROWDOWN'S COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN
- For the coconut rice with green onions:
- Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over high heat. Add the onion and cook until soft, about 2 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat the grains in the butter. Add the coconut milk, water, salt and pepper and bring to a boil, stir once, cover the pot, reduce the heat to medium-low and cook until tender, about 16 minutes.
- Remove from the heat and let the rice sit, covered for 5 minutes. Remove the lid, fluff with a fork and fold in the green onion. Let sit 5 minutes before serving.
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
- Heat the oil in a large, high sided saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook until golden brown and crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with paper towels. Add the butter and 1 tablespoon of canola to the rendered bacon fat in the pan and heat until it begins to shimmer.
- Put the flour in a shallow bowl and season liberally with salt and pepper. Season the chicken on both sides with salt and pepper, dredge in the flour and tap off any excess. Sear the chicken on both sides until golden brown. Remove to plate.
- Add the onion and bell pepper to the pan, season with salt and pepper and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and the serrano and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the curry powder and cook for 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until reduced by 3/4. Add the chicken stock, bring to a simmer and reduce slightly. Stir in the tomatoes, currants or raisins, thyme, 2 teaspoons of honey and season with a little salt and pepper and bring to a simmer. Nestle the chicken thighs into the pan, cover with a tight fitting lid and bake in the oven for 35 minutes. Remove the lid after 35 minutes and continue to bake an additional 15 minutes.

LEE BROS. COUNTRY CAPTAIN
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
- Pour the broth into a small saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Put the currants in a small bowl and pour enough broth over them to cover. Set aside. In another small bowl, combine the curry powder, garam masala, salt, and black pepper and reserve.
- Scatter the bacon in a 4 to 6 quart enameled cast-iron pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Stir the pieces around occasionally until the bacon is firm and just golden brown, about 5 minutes. With the slotted spoon, transfer the bacon to a small bowl and reserve.
- Pour off all but 2 tablespoons of fat from the pot, reserving the excess fat in a small bowl. Brown the chicken thighs in batches over medium-high heat, taking care not to crowd them in the pot, until they are golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Add the reserved bacon fat, 1 teaspoon at a time, if the pot becomes too dry. Remove the chicken and reserve in a medium bowl.
- Add 2 teaspoons reserved bacon fat to the pot (if there is none left, use 2 teaspoons canola or vegetable oil). Add the chile and toast the chile in the fat, about 30 seconds per side, until very fragrant.
- Add the carrots, bell peppers, onions, and garlic and cook until slightly softened, about 6 minutes. Add the tomatoes, spice mixture, ginger, and the currants and their broth. Reduce the heat to medium-low, and simmer until the tomatoes have cooked down to a puree and the sauce has thickened around the vegetables, about 8 minutes.
- Nest the chicken thighs gently in the vegetable sauce so that the skin side faces up and is above the surface of the gravy. Tent the pot loosely with foil and transfer to the middle rack of the oven. Bake until the country captain resembles a roiling stew around the chicken thighs, about 20 minutes. Remove the foil and bake until the sauce has thickened further and the chicken skin is just beginning to crisp, about 15 minutes more.
- Remove from the oven, skim any excess fat from the surface, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Discard the chile. With tongs, transfer 3 thighs to each of 4 wide, deep bowls filled with 1 cup hot white rice. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and the rice and garnish with the reserved bacon, almonds, and parsley.

- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
- Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add the almonds and toast swirling the pan until golden. Remove almonds and set aside, reserve skillet.
- Season the chicken all over with salt and pepper. Dredge the chicken in flour and shake off any excess. Heat the oil and butter in the skillet over medium high heat. Cook the chicken on both sides until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
- Add the onion, bell pepper, garlic, curry powder, thyme, and cayenne to the pan. Stir to loosen up the brown bits on the bottom of the pan. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes and nestle the chicken pieces in the sauce, bring the sauce up to a simmer and then transfer to the oven and cook until the chicken is cooked through and tender, 20 to 25 minutes.
- Remove skillet from the oven and transfer chicken to a serving dish. Spoon any oil off the surface of the sauce and discard. Bring the sauce to a simmer over medium heat, add the currants and simmer to thicken slightly. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Spoon the sauce over the chicken and scatter the toasted almonds on top. Serve with a dollop of cool yogurt and herb sauce.

Country Captain is a dish you'll find throughout the Lowcountry of South Carolina and Georgia, in restaurants and home dining rooms alike. It has been a staple of Southeastern Junior League cookbooks since at least the 1950s and is found in various forms in older cookbooks as far back as the 18th century. It is, simply, chicken fried in butter or bacon fat, then stewed in the oven with tomatoes fragrant with curry and pepper and served over white Carolina rice. Made correctly, it captures exactly that moment of excitement you can feel when first arriving in the region from far away: a sense that everything really is different in the South, that it is the one last, true regional culture in the United States.

SLOW COOKER COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN
Cook's Country. Basic curry powder turns bitter after six hours in a slow cooker, so stick with Madras curry powder. By tradition, this dish can be garnished with any or all of the following: sliced toasted almonds, shredded coconut, diced Granny Smith apples, and diced banana. Steamed long-grain rice is a must.

COUNTRY CAPTAIN ( EAST INDIA CHICKEN CURRY)
The original recipes comes from an old edition of Joy of Cooking. Over the years I've modified the recipe using only white meat and updating the cooking method. Serve over steamed white or brown rice. This is a recipe that can easily be adjusted to serve two! UPDATE 8/30/07: I've made some further adjustments to this recipe to give it more depth and 'kick it up a notch'. If using the Hot Madras Curry Powder suggest that you taste test after addition of the first teaspoon.

SAUCY COUNTRY CAPTAIN CHICKEN
A tomato based chicken stew. Serve with rice for an easy, healthy meal. It's really delicious and almost hard to stop eating! Because my father wouldn't eat this, it was served only when he was out of town. I've updated it with fresh mushrooms, in lieu of canned, better curry mixes, and serve it with basmati or jasmine brown rice. Add zucchini, broccoli or cauliflower for added health. Hope you enjoy it as much as I have over the years. It's one of my comfort foods.
