I found this recipe in a Newspaper many years ago and I believe that it is an African dish if my memory is correct, although don't quote me on it. "This takes a little while to make but it's VERY delicious and worth the effort." The flavors are unique and wonderful!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 10 inch skilled saute chicken which has been skinned, deboned, and cut-up; with garlic salt and 1/2 cup oil until lightly browned. Set aside.
  2. In a 4 quart kettle saute chopped yellow onions, ginger and green pepper in 1/4 cup oil until onions are soft.
  3. Add tomatoes and simmer 5 minutes. Add salt, black pepper thyme, tomato paste and simmer 10 minutes.
  4. Add the cooked meat and crushed red pepper. Simmer 20 minutes.
  5. In a 2 quart saucepan cook rice, chicken stock and onions until tender.
  6. Serve the rice on a platter arranging the meat/sauce in the center.
  7. I have made this and mixed all ingredients together with rice for my daughter to take to school for a sharing of African ethnic cooking. It was a big hit. Nearly everyone asked for the recipe.
  8. This takes a little while to make but its delicious and well worth the effort.".

Thanks to Pic A Chef I picked this unknown recipe to try.

This was a totally different recipe to try. Loved the flavors. They bleneded so well.

I chose to put the hot peppers on the side letting everyone have it their way for hotness.

Will be making this dish again.
