Mwambe (Palm chicken dish)

Have you had mwambe (or moambe, the spelling is always a problem!) ?

It’s a palm oil based chicken dish in Congo. You should give it a go. It is served with sweet fried plantains, “saka saka” or a type of spinach like dish using manioc leaves. It’s all served with some normal local rice.

This is what it looks like. I love it. You can eat it with pilipili, the local chilli sauce.

Here is a version of the recipe in French:
