    André Grisell's Note:

    Once, when I was about to make the Ethiopian national dish Zigni, I couldn't find any beef. I used frozen chicken breasts instead, and slightly modified the recipe. I must say that I was stunned at the result! Try to find something better than cooking oil. I used canned duck fat. Don't worry too much about the amount of fat. The other ingredients are virtually fat-free. Recipes for berbere pepper can be found on Recipezaar.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Brown the chicken thoroughly on high heat in a skillet in some of the fat. Set aside. Don't put too much meat into the skillet at once, or they won't brown.
    2. 2
      Fry the onion and garlic in additional fat in a pot on medium heat until it is transparent.
    3. 3
      Add berbere pepper and tomato paste and more fat if necessary in order not to burn the berbere.
    4. 4
      Stir for a moment, then add chicken, tomatoes, stock and lemon peel.
    5. 5
      Let simmer, covered, until the chicken is tender but not over-cooked (15-20 min).
    6. 6
      Add salt and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      Garnish with cilantro stems and serve immediately with rice or on flat bread.
