    Muamba de Galinha (Chicken Stew)

    I don't know if I told you guys or not, but I am participating with a group of foodies who are making the National Dish, or other significant dish, of every country and/or territory. This is the National Dish of Angola. I did take some liberties with the recipe, such as, I used skinless, boneless chicken thighs (which cut the cooking time in half), and substituted green peas for the okra. I am not likely to be trying okra any time soon.

    Muamba de Galinha (Angolan Chicken Stew)

    3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1 lemon)

    4 garlic cloves, crushed

    1/2 teaspoon salt

    1 1/2 teaspoons chili powder

    1 chicken, quartered

    1/2 cup red palm oil

    3 onions, chopped

    1 chili pepper, left intact

    3 tomatoes, quartered

    1 lb butternut squash or 1 lb pumpkin, cut into 1 1/2-inch cubes

    1 cup chicken broth

    1/2 lb frozen okra, thawed

    1. Combine lemon juice, 2 of the garlic cloves, salt, and chili powder; rub all over chicken and marinate at least 1 hour up to overnight.
    2. Heat oil in a Dutch oven, over medium heat, and brown chicken on all sides, in batches, if necessary.
    3. Add onion, remaining garlic, chili pepper and tomatoes; bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is tender, about 1 hour.
    4. Add squash, chicken broth, and okra; cook until vegetables are tender, about 15 minutes.
    5. Serve with boiled yuca or over rice

    Changing the okra to peas will have altered more than just a veggie... Okra has a natural thickening agent. You may need to add a little cornstarch to offset that substitution.
