I had a lovely man from Senegal stay a few years ago and he gave me this recipe from his home.

It is a great spiced dish and goes beautifully with a beer.

ingredients (For 4)

- 4 Chopped Parsley

- 8 thigh chicken pieces

- 4 medium onions

- 2 lemons

- 4 cloves of garlic

- Tablespoon Black pepper corns

- Tablespoon Dijon mustard

- Half Teaspoon Cayenne pepper

- 24 Stoned Green olives


So first take the peppercorns, cayenne pepper & garlic and mix in a pestle & mortar to make a paste. Prick the chicken and rub all over with the paste. Put chicken in a bowl.

Take your onions and slice thinly and place in a bowl with the chicken. Add two teaspoons of Dijon mustard, juice of one lemon and cover for a couple of hours.

Take your chicken out of the bowl and fry in a large saucepan until golden brown.

Add all the onions and marinade from the bowl cook it down and add half a glass of water. Cooking time should be roughly 30-45minutes on a very low heat.

Season with salt and pepper and add a few squeezes of lemon, chopped parsley, green olives before serving.

Serve with basmati rice & a beer.
