This Haitian Chicken Recipe is a one pot wonder! Full of chicken, tomatoes, wine, spices, and more, this recipe is easy and delicious!
Not only is this recipe crazy easy and tasty, it just so happens to come from my friend Liz’s (The Lemon Bowl <— check it ouuuuut) new eCookbook: Food From Our Ancestors: The Ultimate Jewish Shabbat Dinner.
I literally want to make every single recipe in the book, but this recipe in particular stood out to me, because
- It’s spicy
- You literally throw everything into a bowl, let it marinade for a bit, then cook it all in ONE pot
- 8 ingredients. ‘Nough said
Like I said, this recipe is from Liz’s latest eCookbook, which is only ONE part of a larger series called Food From Our Ancestors. So far, she’s released books for: The Ultimate Italian Sunday Dinner (check out the shrimp scampi) and The Ultimate Mexican Sunday Dinner.
I can tell you, they’re all SO delicious. Plus, how cool is it to have her family’s recipes?
This Haitian Chicken is no different. It’s actually kind of amazing how something SO simple can pack such a flavor punch.
All you need to do is place chicken in a large bowl and cover with tomatoes, tomato paste, onions, garlic powder, seasoned salt, cayenne, and white wine.
Simple, but seriously so delicious.
This Haitian Chicken is spicy from the cayenne and so bright from the tomatoes and wine.
I served this over brown rice with a side salad and I highly recommend it. 🙂
The perfect easy, quick, week night meal, you guys!
