Peanut chicken


2 onions
4 chicken legs
2 tablespoons peanut butter
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 tablespoon tomato paste
Fine salt
Ground black pepper
180 g rice


Peel and finely chop the onions.
Remove the skin from the chicken thighs.
In a casserole dish, heat the oil over high heat and place the chicken legs to brown for 10 minutes, turning them regularly until they are golden brown on all sides.
Keep warm.
Add the peanut paste and tomato paste to the casserole dish.
Pour 3 glasses of water, add salt and pepper.
With a wooden spoon or spatula, scrape the bottom of the pan to remove the cooking juices from the chicken and mix to obtain a homogeneous sauce. Reduce heat to low.
Put the chicken legs back in the sauce and cover.
Simmer chicken thighs for 45 minutes, stirring regularly.
Meanwhile, cook the rice.
Serve the rice with the chicken thighs, generously topped with peanut and tomato sauce.

The nutritionist's advice:

This traditional West African recipe, also known as Mafé, will delight the taste buds of those who love exoticism. For a lighter recipe, replace half the rice with grilled vegetables.
