Jamaican Chicken Stew

Tonight's recipe was inspired from a Cooking Light magazine (about 10 years old).  It is called Jamaican Chicken Stew - it was delicious and spicy.  Do you have a cold?  This will help! 

Are these still available in the stores?  I found these in the back of a drawer - I think they are very old but work great for cutting juicy stuff
The ingredients:

I love the spices:
Mix in with the chicken:
Saute the onions, garlic and then the chicken:

Add the wine, beans and tomatoes:
Serve over the white rice... we are giving this one 4.5 stars!
The only thing missing:
A bit of tidbit information - John and I went to Jamaica for our honeymoon almost 28 years ago to Couples resort!
