This recipe has been in my family for years, we've got it from a neighbour in Rotterdam (Netherlands). I am sure my mother has changed it some over the years, but this is as I recall it. The entire recipe is a matter of taste, some like lots of veggies and a mild flavor, some like little veggies and a blasting hot flavor with 8 cloves of garlic -- Try and see what works!
- 2 lbs chicken wings or 2 lbs chicken drumsticks
- oil or butter
- 1 -2 green bell pepper
- 1 -2 onion
- 14 ounces stewed tomatoes
- 6 ounces tomato paste
- sambal oelek (tabasco or other hot sauce works too)
- bouillon cube
- Cut the wings at the joints so you have 3 pieces, or simply use drumsticks. You can skin the chicken if you want to, we never do. Cut the bell peppers and onions in strips. Peel the garlic and mash it up.
- Put some oil, butter or even pam in a medium hot skillet(a large and deep skillet!) Add the chicken and cook until the chicken seems to get done some.
- Add the onions, garlic and bell peppers and stir-fry the whole lot for a while to add some color to the vegetables.
- Cut the stewed tomatoes in smaller bits and add to the dish along with the tomato paste, fill the empty cans with water and add also. Add some sambal (1 teaspoon in our version) or hot sauce. Add stock cubes (one or two is usually enough, again, this is something to do to taste).
- Let the whole thing simmer for about 15 minutes, which gives you time to cook some rice with it ;).
- Taste, add salt and sambal if needed. add a pinch of sugar if the tomatoes taste a bit tangy. Serve with rice.
The whole family enjoyed this! And it was very easy!
The sauce in this recipe is fantastic! I will be making it again but using wings, used legs this time. The sauce has a zing but not to spicy (of course you can make it as hot as you like;) I used 6 cloves of garlic and 1/3 of a bottle of Tabasco and a little chipotle Tabasco. Would be a great with chicken breast also. Thanks so much!
