Recipe for Hoodoo Uncrossing Chicken

Some of the most powerful magic we have at our disposal is the food we eat. As cooks, we have the ability to influence everything and everyone in the household through the food that we prepare by being mindful of the ingredients we use, our intent, our words, and the process of creating the meal.

When it comes to uncrossings, we typically limit our remedies to spiritual baths and floor

washes

things

of that nature. I would like to suggest using the realm of Food as

... Medzin/Medicine to assist in the removal of negative energies and inviting positive energies into your life. Here is a recipe for what I call Hoodoo Uncrossing Chicken.

Our bodies are our temples; treatment should occur on all levels - from the inside out and about, betwixt and between.

Serves 4-6

Ingredients:

• 3 lbs chicken

• 4 brazil nuts, ground

• 1/2 tsp chili powder (exorcise evil entities, send the devil running)

• 2 tsp coriander ground (invite love, passion & fidelity)

• 1 tsp galangal (influence the powers in your favor, brings luck and good health)

• 1 garlic clove, crushed (ward off evil and negativity)

• 1/2 tsp turmeric, ground (for purification and protection)

• 4 tbsp olive oil (for blessings)

• 2 onions chopped (repel unwanted energies)

• 3 cups coconut milk (open roads)

• 2 in cassia bark (Heat up the effects)

• 1 lemon grass stalk or 1 tsp powder (ward off evil, remove jinxes)

• 2 tbsp lemon juice (break up negative energies and entities that have attached themselves to you and your home)

• salt (blessings)

Preparation:

Joint chicken and cut across bone into serving pieces. Thank the spirit of the chicken for providing you and your family with nourishment. Mix nuts, chili, coriander, galangal, garlic and turmeric to a paste with a little olive oil and rub over the chicken. Pray for the removal of stagnant, negative energies and invite positive light and blessings into your life. Leave for a few hours. Heat the remaining oil in pan and fry the onions until golden brown. Add the chicken pieces and fry until golden. Gradually add the coconut milk, stirring gently while bringing to a boil to prevent curdling. Focus on the removal of obstacles and opening roads to success while doing this. Add lemon grass and cassia and simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes or until the sauce is thick. Pray for the quick removal of negative energies when adding these ingredients. Stir in lemon juice and add salt to taste. These final ingredients are to detach any negative energy stuck to you and to bless and purify your life and family. Serve with plain rice and hoe cakes or cornbread.
