In This Recipe
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.
Add the rest of the ingredients , seaon with salt and pepper, cover and seal the lid with a towel.
Lower the heat and simmer for about 40-45 minutes, shaking the pan occasionally.
In the meantime, prepare the attiéké:
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.
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.
