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!

This was quite good and I would make it again with a few adjustments. I found the sauce to be too thin, so I would cook it longer with lid off to reduce the liquid, or thicken with a little rice flour (I am gluten intolerant). The blend of spices was aromatic and very tasty. But, still felt like it needed a little "something" to give it 5 stars.

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.

Wow, what a great recipe! Doro Tibs is my favorite Ethiopian dish, and this tastes very similar. I did have to use cranberry juice instead of wine though, as I got carded for the wine and left my ID at home so they wouldn't sell it to me! Next time I will use the wine, but it was a delicious dish even without it. I love the heat level especially - it has just the right amount for me. Thanks for sharing this.

So good! I made some small alterations due to personal preference. Used margarine instead of butter since I do not mix meat and dairy. Furthermore I used allspice instead of nutmeg and I "chickened" out on the berbere and used 1tbs cayenne pepper and 1tbs sweet paprika instead of the 2tbs ground red pepper. We had it over rice and it was perfect.
It freezes well too.
Thanks for posting.

I made Jasmine rice to soak up the sauce and we really loved it! I served some Greek yogurt on the side to dip my chicken in as I ate. Yum!

Made this last night using chicken breasts and really enjoyed it. I used a berbere that I had purchased at a spice store. I thought the dish was really flavorful and I will definitely make it again. Thanks!
