Get out a gallon storage bag, add the lime juice to the bag.  Wash the chicken remove the skin leave the bone and cut up the thighs, season the chicken liberally with the curry powder, garlic, onion powder, salt, pepper, cumin, and allspice.  Add the seasoned chicken to the storage bag and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.  Get out a heavy skillet add approximately 2 1/2 tablespoons of vegetable oil.  Heat the oil to hot, 350 degrees.  Add 2 tablespoons of prepared commercial Jamician seasoning stir and cook until the seasoning changing color to a dark brown.  This step takes 2-3 minutes.  Add the chicken, NOT THE SKIN, and cook for another for another 2-3 minutes.  Add the broth, coconut milk, yams, onions, garlic, carrots, bell pepper, green onions, jalapeno, and ginger to the skillet, stir and cover, cook for approximately 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.  Remove the chicken from the skillet, set aside.  Continue to cook uncovered to thicken the gravy.
