  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 inch ginger
  • 1 pebe (Ehuru/African nutmeg)
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper

  • 3 seasoning cubes (Maggi)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 habanero peppers

  1. Rinse chicken, cut into desired slices and place in pot.

  2. Add water to the level of the chicken.

  3. Blend together the Njangsa, Ehuru, onion, white pepper, rosemary, garlic, ginger, and hot pepper and pour into the pot. Add in salt and Maggi and let it cook until chicken is done.

  4. Add in chopped carrots and green beans if using. Turn off the heat after 2 minutes.

  5. Enjoy warm as it is or with a side of choice. I love it with boiled ripe plantains!

Recipe Notes

You could replace chicken with a protein of choice in this recipe. Fish, goat meat and beef are good alternatives.
