Clean and cut chicken into medium chunky pieces.
Season chicken with curry powder, black pepper, salt, bouillon, 5 crushed pimentos, 1 sprig thyme, and ginger. Blend seasoning into the meat very well.
Marinating is optional ( 1 hour )
In a wide pot and oil and heat to 300 degrees Fahrenheit or 150 degrees celsius. Add half of the chicken to the pot and stir, (adding color) then add the other half and stir. This helps release the flavors and give the chicken color.
PLEASE DO NOT BURN THE MEAT
Turn heat down to medium-low heat and cover pot to cook the chicken. As soon as the meat is almost done, add potatoes and cook until they are almost tender, then add onions, thyme, pimento, garlic, scotch bonnet, and carrots. Stir in together and let simmer until the seasoning releases its flavor and the gravy is reduced.
