African Chicken Stew

It seems like I'm running out of better ideas on how to cook chicken so one day, I opened a cookbook for help. I chanced upon this recipe - African Chicken Stew - which is believed to be from West Africa. 

The good thing about this dish is that no matter how it sounds exotic, it is actually very easy to make - with ingredients easily found and can even be modified to whatever's readily on-hand. Another thing I liked about it is that it is already a one-pot meal with vegetables.

W liked it!
