African style chicken

This is a sort of smoked chicken, cooked in a tomato-coconut sauce, and served with kidney beans and plain rice. It's quite a simple recipe, with ready-made ingredients, but which needs a long cooking time on low heat (one hour).

Remarks

You can easily replace palm oil with olive oil, for a tastier dish tomato coulis by tomato sauce for pizzas.

It's a meal which can easily be re-heated or frozen. So do not hesitate to make a good deal of it, even if it's for the first time.
