    Chabear01's Note:

    Posting this recipe for ZWT II - Africa/Middle East. Jollof rice originated in French colonial Africa. The subtle combination of flavors compares to the chicken jambalaya served in New Orleans homes. This recipe taken from "Avons International Cookbook"

      What a wonderful recipe! Easy to make since it requires a lot of simmering. I made it for my sister's going away party - she's in Ghana now - but it was such a hit that it is now in my recipe box!! Thanks!
