Hey hey hey! I wanted to get this one posted right away because I know my readers would love this recipe. Anyway, I wanted to try out something different with chicken and found a pretty interesting sounding recipe. This recipe is called Akoho sy Sakamalo. It’s an Madagascar staple which is served with rice. The chicken is rubbed with ginger, lemon zest and garlic for two hours or overnight in the fridge, ( I prefer overnight) then cooked in coconut oil with peppers.
I was a little unsure about the coconut oil because I have only used it for oil pulling and for hair care. I never liked anything cooked with it either but I was so surprised this chicken was sooooooo so good. I cut the chicken up and mixed it with rice then gave it to my 2 yr old, 10 minutes later it was gone! I was so shocked, since he’s Mr. Picky Boy! I’m definitely making this chicken again. Maybe I should start posting more international recipes on the blog weekly. I think that would be pretty interesting. What do you think?
