Today we make delicious thick and saucy chicken, which you can serve with rice or ugali. To balance your meal, whip up some coconut sukuma wiki.

What you will need:

1 kg chicken, cut into eight pieces

1 tomato, grated

1 onion, sliced

50g tomato paste

1 tbsp ginger, crushed

1 capsicum, diced

1 teaspoon cumin powder

1 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons mchuzi mix

Salt to taste

2 tablespoons oil

Juice of one lime

1 cup water

What to do:

In a pan over medium heat, pour the oil and sauté the onions until soft. Add the ginger paste and sauté for a few seconds. Now add in grated tomato, cumin, black pepper and mix well.

Throw in the chicken and cook for a minute or two. Add the capsicum and stir. Put in the tomato paste. Dilute the mchuzi mix in a quarter cup of water, and pour it in the pot.

Cook covered until the chicken has released its natural juices. When almost cooked, pour in the water and simmer, until the sauce thickens. Now you can add the lime juice and mix; simmer for two to three minutes. Your dish is ready.
