Anna shares a family recipe for Poulet Yassa – a Senegalese favorite! Poulet Yassa is a tasty and easy dish to prepare. The flavorful mix of onions, garlic and lemon in this dish will tantalize anyone’s tastebuds. After trying this recipe with chicken – give it a go with fish. Enjoy!
In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of lemon juice, 1/2 cup of cooking oil, red and black pepper to taste, and salt to taste. Whisk together.
Into a bigger bowl, add 2-3 lbs of chicken pieces (whole or half) and 4 to 5 large chopped onions. Crush 3-4 cloves of garlic, and add into the bowl. Add the marinade mixture. Mix together. Marinate overnight. Grill in barbecue or cook in oven. Caramelize the onions while the chicken cooks. Serve over white rice.
