    Beautiful BC's Note:

    This recipe is from the October 2006 issue of Cooking Light. It's very tasty! The original recipe calls for using breast halves, drumsticks and thighs. I just used skinned, boneless breasts. Also, used olive oil instead of cooking spray. This is their description - " This flavourful Ethipian-inspired chicken stew uses Berbere, an Ethiopian spice blend. Store extra spice mix covered in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks. Use leftovers on Salmon, flank steak, or chicken for fiery flavour. Serve with basmati rice. **prep time includes marinating time *Additional tip*- MaidinAfrica suggested swirling a bit of plain yogurt on top just before serving so we tried that - it's really good and the contrast of colours swirled together makes for a very pretty presentation!

      Delicious! My daughter and I made this on two separate nights and were both thrilled with the results. To extend the number of servings, I added some diced zucchini in the last 20 minutes. Yummo!

      Very good.... I did cut the amount of red pepper in half ( 1 Tbsp) for the berbere; out of respect for my wife and replaced it with smoked paprika. I also used boneless skinless chicken thighs cut in half and I added sliced zucchini during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Cooking time was 40 minutes. It was very nice over Basmati rice.

      Wow, that was a surprise! I'm an Indian and Thai curry lover, but had never tried anything like this, fantastically fragrant and rich flavour. This is one I definitely will be making again.
