Beef With Peppers
boneless chicken, cut into pieces
Combine lemon juice, onions, chilies, and black pepper to make a marinade.
Place chicken in a single layer in a baking dish or other glass container,
and cover with the marinade. Seal the dish with plastic wrap and and refrigerate
for about 30 minutes or longer.
Remove chicken from marinade and grill until crisp and brown,
basting with marinade. Remove from grill. To complete the dish, simmer
the grilled chicken in the marinade for about 15 minutes.
In western African countries (such as Nigeria), chicken tends to be very
tough, so it is beaten with a rolling pin and, during the cool season,
wrapped in pawpaw leaves. The chicken is left in the leaves overnight,
which makes the meat more tender and gives it a nice smell of herbs.
Serve the yassa over white boiled rice, topping with the cooked marinade.
