East African Braised Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by L. Duch

This is a wonderful dish I found in "Cooking Light" magazine. This dish if full of flavor and despite all the ingredients, it is very easy to make. It's good served with rice and a flat bread. Braising in a this highly aromatic liquid yields an exceptionally flavorful and tender result.

This took more like 1 hour 45 minutes to make than the 1 hour 10 minutes stated, but worth every minute. It was very easy to make. The aroma throughout the house was incredible and the flavor was even more incredible. We absolutely loved this, LeeAnn!
