Are you in a breakfast rut? Look no further than this Jamaican-style curried chicken, which is both more flavorful and more filling than your bowl of Rice Krispies. Don’t worry, you’ll still get your dose of milk; it'll just be coconut milk to tame the spice in this rich but simple dish.

The best part is you can marinate the chicken overnight and cook it the next day. Think of it like your overnight oats prep with just a couple extra steps. With this dish, you can pretend you’re on island time all the time.

Don't forget in your dutch oven frenzy that this dish is best served over white rice. Because what's a curry dish without the rice? Also, remember your breakfast cereals will always be waiting when you're ready to take them back; they just won't be as tasty.
