Doro Wat (Ethiopian Spicy Braised Chicken)

Doro Wat (Ethiopian Spicy Braised Chicken) created by DianaEatingRichly

Ethiopian cooking is known for its "berbere", a highly spiced hot red pepper sauce. This chicken dish makes use of this sauce. To cut fat, you may take the skin off the chicken, although this is not traditional. Bone in chicken tastes best. Serve with Recipe #455607 455607. This recipe comes from "Classic International Recipes".

    My wife and I both loved this! Great combination of spices. We kept it simple and served with Trader Joe's "middle eastern" flatbread and some hummus. My wife cut hers into bite sizes and made a "taco" with it and loved it. We were even able to get this one in on a weeknight! We used 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts and so they cooked a little quicker (did 25 minutes instead of 30). Thank you!
