Had stew chicken when I was in Belize a year ago. Incredible. Never had anything like it before. Does anybody know how to make it? Recipes?

"It could be anything," in Kevin's words, "and the food generally sucks," in his opinion.
I'm curious now and am looking forward to bringing back some dende oil as I've have heard much about it and know nothing about manioc.

The stew chicken we had was near the Cockscomb basin outside the wildlife preserve at a lodge ran by Mayan Indians (i think?). It was pretty much chicken slow cooks in a yellow stew type base served over rice. I believe the stew base was mostly water, carrots, celery, onions and spices.
I know it's quite involved and needs a couple hours of cooking. But wanted to know if anybody has tried this or if anybody have good recipes for this dish.

I've never seen a more complicated recipe for Belize stew chicken (Belize's "national dish") than simply stewing the chicken parts in a ball of red rocado, some chicken bouillon, and onions. Generally served over rice and beans.
