Have you ever tried Ivorian food? Give it a taste with this simple and delicious chicken stew —Ala Lemon

What You'll Need
  • 300 grams / 10.5 oz. attiéké
  • 1 chicken, cut into 4, or 4 chicken thighs
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, or 3 shallots, chopped
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 piece fresh ginger, chopped or grated (2 cm / 1 in or more, to taste)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  1. In a deep pan, heat the oil over high heat. Carefully add the chicken and sauté for a few minutes, until the skin is crispy.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients , seaon with salt and pepper, cover and seal the lid with a towel.
  3. Lower the heat and simmer for about 40-45 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
  4. In the meantime, prepare the attiéké:
  5. Steamed: line the basket of your steamer with a clean tea towel. Spread the attiéké evenly and fold the rest of the towel over. Put the lid on and steam for about 15-20 minutes, mixing regularly so the grains don’t stick together.
  6. In the microwave: soak the attiéké in the same amount of water (1 cup water for 1 cup attiéké), and set aside for 5 minutes until the liquid is absorbed. Cook about 5 minutes in the microwave (850W). Immediately fluff it with a fork and spread in one layer on a shallow dish to cool.
  7. Serve topped with the chicken and sauce.
